What's On

So, you’ve decided to head to Toowoomba’s hills to explore the Garden City, all that’s left to do is choose where to stay.

From large hotel groups who accommodate the room-service-ordering kind of traveller to romantic cottages for couples’ getaways and family-friendly farm stays in between, take it from us, there’s no shortage of B&B and Airbnb’s in Toowoomba region.

To help navigate the perfect place to spend the night, we’ve pulled together a list of our favourite B&Bs and Airbnb’s in Toowoomba so you can spend a night to remember in Queensland’s largest inland city.

1. Nell's Place


How would you like to stay in a house steeped with history? If you answered yes, Nell’s Place is the ideal Airbnb for you.

The former family home of Queensland’s first female mayor back in 1967, Nell E Robinson, O.B.E. is conveniently located in Toowoomba’s CBD, just a short walk from Grand Central Shopping Centre and Ruthven Street.

Fresh from a renovation in 2020, the three-bedroom house has all the modern conveniences, including luxury furniture and a chef’s kitchen. Step into the screen-fenced backyard and you will forget you are in the CBD, with an outdoor patio and barbeque ready to entertain your friends and family.

Nell’s Place is the perfect inner city retreat for your next visit to Toowoomba.

2. Kiambram Country Cottages


A short 20 minute drive from Toowoomba’s CBD is eco farm stay Bed and Breakfast, Kiambram Country Cottages. With three studio cabins and a circa 1910 three-bedroom Queenslander cottage, there is ample space for the whole gang.

Laze on your deck overlooking the picturesque valley or get out your hiking boots and tackle the bush tucker and sunset trails. The land surrounding Kiambram is a wildlife haven, and you are sure to see a multitude of birds, wallabies and other local fauna during your stay.

Each cabin is equipped with a kitchenette, deck, private barbeque and firepit. Gumnut Cottage has all the facilities you will need for a larger group, with the sheltered verandah sure to be the main attraction. In true B&B style, a country breakfast pantry is included, with farm veggies and bush tucker additions available seasonally.

3. ecoRidge Hideaway

Eco Rodge Hideaway 2

The clue might be in the name of this B&B in Toowoomba, but this eco-property, hidden on Toowoomba’s ridgeline among 50 acres of natural bushland, is full of surprises once you check-in.

The husband and wife team who built it, fell in love with the property during their own travels in Australia and promptly bought the block of land and created three chalets among the gum trees.

The premise for the property is simple – escape the city, soak up the country and leave only footprints when you return home; a philosophy we can fully endorse.

The owners have designed everything about these cabins for the ultimate re-charge, which is why ecoRidge Hideaway offer three different breakfast hamper options for you to DIY your most important meal of the day.

Your agenda for the day can be as busy (or not) as you like – whether you want to watch the birds from your balcony, take the 3km nature trail on the property or venture further afield for more serious bushwalking like Mount Campbell, the highest peak in the area.

4. Norwood Roses


An old corner store turned one of Toowoomba’s dreamiest Queenslander cottages with an award-winning rose garden is what you’ll discover at Norwood Roses.

The fairy floss pink cottage is the perfect location for a romantic getaway. Sink into the dreamy clawfoot tub with a glass of bubbles, or lounge on the verandah with a cuppa and enjoy the luscious garden filled with flowers year-round.

The Airbnb is filled with art, antiques and cosy vintage furniture, transporting you to a different era, where relaxation is key. For those feeling a little more adventurous, the cottage is located just a short distance from the Toowoomba CBD where scrumptious cafes and vibrant laneway art await.
