Kookynie, pronounced Koo-keye-nee, is situated 70km north east of Menzies by road and is part of the Shire of Menzies. Nowadays the town, commonly referred to as a ghost town, caters for many tourists, prospectors, fossickers, mining and exploration companies, pastoralists and a local population of thirteen.

The Hotel offers an excellent collection of historic photographs, antique bottles and memorabilia from Kookynie’s past. The Old Miner's Cottage is the last timber and iron building remaining in Kookynie from the turn of the 1900's and along with the Grand Hotel, old shops and the Cosmopolitan hotel ruins are the only remaining structures left offering a glimpse of it's past.
