Who we are

The Kookaburra Story


Kookaburra was the creation of partners James and Tristan that came to be from the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic. After losing their jobs during the first Victorian lockdown, they used their newfound free time to start the business they had always dreamed about creating. This business would focus on bringing iconic pieces of Australian nature to those unable to visit. While researching and testing the best fragrances, they saw the need for more products that are developed and made from Australian materials. This is where Kookaburra Living was born! Our focus and dedication to ensuring we offer nothing less that the best and most natural products is our goal as a brand. Our motto is "Live life happy and healthy" something we hope to KL experience can bring to you. 

"Live life happy and healthy"

When creating the business, the hardest part was finding something special that represented the values of Kookaburra Living. With so many diverse plants and animals across the nation, it was not easy choosing the top candidate. Luckily inspiration flew our way one day when outside the KL office our friendly neighbourhood Kookaburra stopped for a visit. Watching him laugh and play with other birds made it clear he was the top choice to be the icon of our business. 


Kookaburras are iconic Aussie and are distinct in their social life and personalities. They are very happy-go-lucky and who could forget that memorable laugh. We love Kookaburras and how they choose to fly though life. It's our goal to live like the Kookaburras, "Happy and healthy" while always remembering to "Laugh at Life."

Showcasing Australia

Australia is a glorious land full of amazing people and places. Here at Kookaburra Living, we wanted to make sure we stayed true to where we're from. There were plenty of cheaper routes to go for our products from foreign suppliers but we stuck with local quality. We found during 2020 that local manufacturing was a severely underutilised and that some products that are household names have subpar and even questionable ingredients. Here at KL, the "Australian Experience" begins with the creation of our products from locally sourced materials to shipping and support from our HQ in Victoria.


We're proud to have our exceptional products being endorsed by various groups such as the Australian Made Campaign, BuyAussieNow. This is important to us as when you see these logos you know you're purchasing products that help your community and keep jobs local.
