History of the Cottage

In memory of one of Toowoomba's early settlers, the cottage is named after Augusta Florence Alford who owned the cottage from 1901 to 1920. Augusta's husband was Henry King Alford, whose family were among the early settlers to the area.

The first time that the name 'Toowoomba' appeared on a public document was when it was written on Henry's baptismal certificate at the first Church of England service held on August 29th, 1852. It was Henry's mother who gave the future city of Toowoomba its name. Henry had various pastoral interests and was elected Mayor of Toowoomba in 1911 and 1912.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Toowoomba cottage Lovely to come home and make a warm fire on a chilly Toowoomba evening. Short walk to town as well as great local cafes and pub.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can we stay forever? What a fabulous place for a family celebration! Augusta's is beautifully appointed - we came to stay for my sisters wedding and the cottage was a perfect place for the bride and bridesmaids to get ready. We had some lovely photo's taken of us at the cottage - it made a special day even more memorable. We loved our stay, it is comfortable for adults and kids alike. The children were delighted to see the Tawny Frog-mouth and the yard was a great area for them to play and explore. Us parents especially enjoyed that the yard is completely secure for the children. Thank you for a lovely stay, we hope to see you again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful getaway We loved Augusta's cottage, the gardens, the beautiful old home (with 2 fireplaces), The owner has certainly put a lot of thought and care into refurbishing this cottage. It was cosy and we didn't want to leave.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great place to stay A great opportunity to stay with history all around you in this well presented cottage. Central to everything and well appointed. Thanks for the extras. Just needed a coffee machine or even a plunger but other wise everything is provided. Beautiful fresh flowers throughout. And a great garden to seek a warm spot in the winter sun. We did enjoy our winter stay and hope to come again..
