Why Ange & Jeff Aikman chose Toowoomba City
We fell in love with Banksia Cottage the first time we walked through the door. Soon after that, we were the proud new owners of the historic Banksia Cottage. Our guests love Banksia Cottage because it is enchanting and historic. The location is also unbeatable, positioned in a quiet tree-lined street, but only a 10 minute walk from the CBD, restaurants, parks and gardens!

Wonderful place to stay. Superb attention to detail, very clean and comfortable. Warm and cosy in winter. Very pet friendly. Our miniature schnauzer had the best holiday ever. We had the pleasure of meeting the owners Jeff and Ange who couldn't do enough to make our stay the best experience possible. We totally recommend Banksia Cottage, we will definitely be back for a return visit. Greg Nerryl and Floyd the schnauzer
Feels like home!
My family absolutely loved this cottage. It was cozy, all the comforts and really set the scene for a relaxing and enjoyable weekend. It was well presented, very clean, kids loved the cricket set and the board games made for family time around the fireplace. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to others.
So clean, comfortable and atmospheric. Every possible need was catered for, with some added thoughtful touches. The bed was SO comfy. Loved the wood fire too. Very well maintained with a pretty garden. Handy location. Very dog-friendly with nice park behind back fence. Thanks for a most enjoyable experience, Ange and Jeff.

The Perfect Wedding Getaway!!
Banksia Cottage was the perfect little getaway for my new husband and I! We stayed there in the lead up to, and after our wedding which took place at Gabbinbar Homestead that weekend. It's a beautiful and charming cottage, farm house meets rustic romance style! The fireplace and record player were the perfect combo while we finalised our speeches a couple days before! The master bed is so soft and comfortable, and we were so refreshed on our big day. Ange was very helpful and thoughtful, leaving us a wedding card and bottle of champagne, as well as hanging up some hooks for my wedding dress to fully hang - the perfect touch! Highly recommend Banksia Cottage to anyone wanting a getaway in beautiful Toowoomba, the house is a 5 minute walk to some incredible cafes, and just outside the main town. Thank you so much Ange for such a wonderful stay!
Very nice and cosy. Perfect winter getaway
