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 We just love it! We just loved our second visit to Augusta's Cottage. It is full of character, homely, cosy and yet spacious. We love sitting around the fire in the evenings. The garden is lovely. A wonderful place to stay in the winter. Therese's paintings are fun and she is a super helpful host.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable, welcoming and friendly host We very much enjoyed our stay at Augusta's cottage. Quite an old/historic building but extremely tidy and comfortable. We stayed with a 18month and 4 year old, they had heaps of fun in the yard and they were well catered for in terms of making the necessary equipment available. The host was extremely helpful and welcoming, she went out of her way to make our stay comfortable and we appreciated all of her efforts. We will certainly look to stay here again next time we come to Toowoomba

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Historic cottage full of character Loved our stay in this comfortable, centrally located cottage. Lovely gardens and outdoor areas to relax in during the day and a cozy fire place to curl up in front of at night. Thank you Therese for your hospitality.
