Empty Nesters

  • 4 of 5

We found the Banksia Cottage a charming stay with our two border collies, Tavish and Robbie. Yes we are new to being ,empty nesters' and we found our couple of days good 'switch off' time' to adjust to our new status. We had a beer on the front verandah and red wine by the fire. We had coffee on the back porch while our pups played in the cottage gardens. We walked our pups each morning and evening around the characterful streets. The architecture here is truly delightful. We did RELAX. Thanks Jeff and Ange.

About The Owner

Hello and welcome to Banksia Cottage.

Providing beautiful and boutique, self-contained accommodation is our passion. We love meeting new people and thoroughly enjoy sharing Banksia Cottage with the world!

With well over 100 years of history running through her rafters, I'm sure she could tell a few stories!! It's the serenity you feel when you walk through the door that makes staying at Banksia Cottage a tranquil experience.

We believe in providing our guests with uninterrupted privacy and freedom essential for any revitalising getaway. We want you to feel relaxed, as after all … on holiday. And if you need us we are only a phone call away.

We hope you can come and visit soon!

Why The Owner chose Toowoomba City

We fell in love with Banksia Cottage the first time we walked through the door. Soon after that (over 5 years ago), we were the proud new owners of the historic Banksia Cottage. Our guests love Banksia Cottage because its enchanting, historic and the location is only a 10 minute walk from the CBD, restaurants, parks and gardens, while being positioned in a quiet tree-lined street.

What makes this cottage unique

We are Pet Friendly!! So if (like us) you enjoy travelling with your beloved four legged friend, then Banksia Cottage is your next holiday destination (pets by approval).

Banksia Cottage was built in 1898 so offers travellers an enchanting and romantic experience while being complimented with all your modern day requirements.
