Why Banksia Cottage 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.

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.
