Our guests love Banksia Cottage because its enchanting, historic and positioned in a quiet tree-lined street, but is only a 10 minute walk from the CBD, restaurants, parks and gardens!

Dina, Enzo and Mia (fur child)

We were pleasantly surprised. A gorgeous old home beautifully restored with lots of charm. The bed was so very cosy. Kitchen was well equipped. Beautifully furnished. A great selection of books, games, movies even a Bible. Plenty of firewood the fireplace was a real treat. We enjoyed afternoon Wine on the porch lovely quite street. Some herbs from the garden went well with our dinners. Tv's in both bedrooms. You tube and Netflex. Even a hair straightener. We all really enjoyed our stay Highly recommend.

Beautiful comfortable character home

  • 5 of 5

Loved Toowoomba especially this cottage, clean, comfortable and beautifully maintained. Thank you for thinking of the little things the games for the kids and cricket set were a great bonus.

Great service we will return the only thing that would make the stay better next time is a BBQ out the back (not in the park) so we can enjoy your beautiful backyard setting. Thanks Karen B

Lovely property , the open fire makes it nice and cosy.

  • 4 of 5

Banksia cottage is a lovely old house, the open fire gives a wonderfully warm ambience.

This holiday home is well situated to explore Toowoomba, the city, parks and surrounds.

Definitely somewhere to put on your to do list and for me worth a return trip.

Homely and warm cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the cottage. Fire lit on arrival, salt and pepper available (the little things count!), comfiest mattress we have slept on in a stay away from home and we got to have our little fur babies stay with us. What more could you want!? Highly recommend. Toowoomba was like a little version of Melbourne - we were pleasantly surprised.

Was highly recommended and did not disappoint

  • 5 of 5

Banksia Cottage was highly recommended and we were not disappointed. After staying at a few places on our road-trip, where the facilities were lacking, it was relieving to come here and find the kitchen was fully equipped (not missing a vegie peeler, grater, "sharp" carving knives) - hoorah!! Might sound silly but it is the small things that make travelling easier. We had intended to dine out and sightsee, but the ambience of cottage was so nice we wanted to enjoy every moment. The cleanliness and property maintenance standards are good. Thankyou Ange and Jeff. We really enjoyed our short stay and will be back again. Much appreciated by a family of professional cleaners.
