About our home

We have a spacious home in East Toowoomba right near Queens Park. It is suitable for a family (with a large main bedroom with ensuite and three smaller bedrooms) or couples wanting a comfortable house. We have an open plan kitchen, dining and lounge room with french doors leading onto two separate, North facing deck areas and the garden. The larger deck has seating for eight and a Webber BBQ perfect for our Queensland weather. We have another room off the lounge room we currently use as a playroom. Our house has two bathrooms (the ensuite has a double shower, toilet and hand basin, the main bathroom has a bath, shower, hand basin and a separate toilet). The laundry has a washing machine and dryer. Our house also has a fully ducted reverse cycle air conditioning and an open fireplace in the lounge room. Outside the garden has a slide, trampoline, sandpit and other areas for children to play and ride bikes on. The garden is full of fruit trees and a vegetable patch which you are welcome to utilise during your stay. We have a double carport with remote controlled gate for our seven seat car (car seats and booster seats can be provided if needed)and we would be happy to arrange a car swap. We have enough bikes for our family including an electric assist Dutch Cargo bike.
Toowoomba is a picturesque mountain city located in South East Queensland. It is an easy, scenic drive about one and a half hours from Brisbane, two hours to the Gold Coast and three hours to the Sunshine Coast. Toowoomba is known as the garden city and we live in a quiet, friendly neighbourhood with many colonial houses and pretty gardens surrounding our home. We walk through Queens Park to the town centre with its great restaurants, shopping and the fantastic Art Deco, Empire Theatre. We are also close to the following - a 400m walk to small shopping complex which has cafes, a service station with a small grocery store, Wendland Olives Deli, a bottle shop, hairdressers, beautician and bakery, 200m to beautiful Queens Park and 300m to the Cobb & Co Museum (a campus of the Queensland Museum) which also has a great cafe. Toowoomba's climate is pleasant year round with temperature ranges averaging a cool 5°C to 16°C in winter and a mild 17°C to 27°C in summer. If you want to explore other areas within an easy drive of Toowoomba there are many National Parks (including Bunya Mountains, Springbrook and Lamington), Stanthorpe (vineyards) and delightful country towns.
We will hire a gardener to mow the lawn and provide basic maintenance of the yard.
Would like to arrange a car swap if possible.
Toowoomba has an airport (Brisbane West Airport) with direct flights to Sydney, Melbourne and Cairns.
