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

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 the moment you lay on eyes on the fairy light covered fence, you know something magical is awaiting…
Campbell & Waratah is the perfect slice of country paradise, a home away from home and travel without travelling too far…
Carmen’s attention to detail shines in every corner of the guesthouse with gorgeous themed rooms, cosy beds and fluffy bathrobes awaiting your arrival.
Carmen is a caring host and ensures your time away is spent doing everything you desire on a country getaway.
From lunch at a country pub, visiting the sunflowers, drinks at a brewery, farmers markets or aperitivo by the fire – whatever you want to make it, it is waiting for you at Campbell and Waratah.
Thanks Carmen for an amazing mini break.

Staying at Carman’s 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 with the crisp white sheets, the worldly artefacts so interestingly displayed, I knew I would sleep well in this beautiful room.

Carmen’s Queenslander home 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.
