We named our home-stays Bannockburn because of the surrounding street names, Stirling Street, Battle at Stirling Bridge where William Wallace defeated the English and so started the fight to free Scotland. Bruce Street Robert Bruce who won against the English army at Bannockburn and Burns Street, Robert Burns, famous Scottish poet. We are situated on the Caledonia Estate in East Toowoomba.
We have visited Robert the Bruce's cave and Bannockburn many times. The history is fascinating.
At the battle of Bannockburn in June 1314, Robert the Bruce defeated the English Army under King Edward II, confirming the re-establishment of an independent Scottish Monarchy. He became King of Scots

Toowoomba is a great city to shop ‘til you drop', dine late and discover the best things in life. It is a treasure-trove of tradition and culture.
Crowning the edge of the Great Dividing Range 800 metres above sea level, Toowoomba is renowned for its architecture and open spaces that overlook the Lockyer Valley. One of city’s famous vantage points is Picnic Point, from where you can explore the graded walks along the range escarpment, or sit back, relax and take in the view.
