Western Downs

Weekend away: EcoRidge Hideaway, Toowoomba

Simon Holt Let’s face it, there’s not a lot to do here, but therein lies the attraction – an immaculately-kept 3km walking track, stunning sunrise, the occasional wallaby, cold fridge and a stool for tired feet.

Weekend away: Homewood Cottages, Highfields

Homewood cottages at Homewood, near Toowoomba.

Laura Allen With its homely feel, rustic charm and access to the exquisite Davidson Arboretum, it’s the cottage you always dreamt of having as a child.

Weekend away: B&B Wanulla, Toowoomba

Hannah Tall Everything from the handwritten card on arrival, the drizabone coats aside the front door and crystal port decanter with chocolates in the evening adds to the experience.

Killarney: Spring Creek Mountain Cottages

Spring Creek Mountain Cafe and Cottages at Killarney. The morning view

Simon Holt Good old-fashioned country hospitality is a highlight. Host Bev Ruskey does the cooking herself. Her beef and shiraz pie is legendary among regular guests.
