Our home

We have for exchange our renovated 3 bedroom 2 bathroom cottage in Toowoomba (nicknamed 'The Garden City') in the Darling Downs region in the Australian state of Queensland. It is 125 km (78 mi) west of Queensland's capital city Brisbane by road. The estimated urban population of Toowoomba as of June 2017 was 135,631. A university and cathedral city, it hosts the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers each September and national championship events for the sports of mountain biking and motocross. There are more than 150 public parks and gardens in Toowoomba. It has developed into a regional centre for business and government services. It is also referred to as the capital of the Darling Downs. Toowoomba now has developed an airport (also known as the "Brisbane West Wellcamp Airport") that has flights to most capital cites in Australia like Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Canberra and Darwin.
Our home has three bedrooms main with ensuite and family bathroom. It has split system air conditioning for cooling in summer and heating in winter along with a wood burner. The bedrooms are large with queen size beds and the main is ensuite with walk in robe and king size bed. The kitchen was renovated in August 2017 and has a dishwasher, stone bench tops and large freestanding stove. Large Samsung fridge with double doors, deli drawer and freezer providing filtered water and ice. The back deck is a perfect place to enjoy an afternoon wine and nibbles and the front verandah is a warm and sunny location in the mornings to sit and listen to the birds and watch the world go by.
