Carmen believed there was something missing in the world of accommodation options. She dreamed of a home away from home where women from the county or the city could seek a room to stay where they would feel a sense of connection and be well taken care of. Campbell & Waratah is Carmen’s dream realised and she now opens the doors of her home to you.  Offering comfortable accommodation with breakfast options.


What a lovely getaway! Thank you Carmen for welcoming us into your beautiful guesthouse.

It is absolutely stunning. You have done the most amazing job and everywhere you look there is so much to see. Loved Toowoomba. Loved your home. Loved your company.

Thanks for a relaxing and fun weekend.

From lunch at a country pub, visiting the sunflowers, drinks at a brewery, farmers markets or aperitivo on the verandah – whatever you want to make it, it is waiting for you at Campbell and Waratah.
Thanks Carmen for an amazing mini break.

Staying at Campbell & Waratah, a beautiful old Queenslander, is a like a warm hug. So stylishly furnished, but comfy and welcoming at the same time, with thoughtful little touches like a little tea station in your room & books beside your bed. Lovely

I could not think of a more perfect place to have a girl’s weekend away. Gorgeous warm home near all the beautiful cafes and markets. Bedrooms are all tastefully themed and cosy. Just makes me smile when I think about our weekend away.

Walking into Campbell and Waratah Guesthouse, I was overwhelmed. The four-poster bed in the Explorer Suite with the crisp white sheets, the worldly artefacts so interestingly displayed, I knew I would sleep well in this beautiful room.

Carmen’s Queenslander guesthouse is clean, comfortable and decorated so beautifully, you feel completely relaxed and welcomed….. it truly is a home away from home.

Can’t wait to return for another amazing weekend.
