Vacy Hall Historic Guesthouse, Toowoomba

Experience the grandeur of one of Australia’s most stately homes when you stay in this National Trust listed colonial mansion, located only one hour and 15 minutes west of Brisbane.

Built in the 1870s as a wedding present for the daughter of Hon. James Taylor, a wealthy squatter and Minister for Lands, Vacy Hall is now a heritage listed historic guesthouse providing travellers with an experience reminiscent of the glory days of the ‘squattocracy’ of Queensland.

With new hosts undertaking a rejuvenation which often evokes remarks like Wow! when guests first arrive, Vacy Hall is a unique accommodation experience that appeals to people of all ages.

Indulge in the shade of the deep cool verandahs in the summertime or in winter enjoy the romance of an open fireplace in your own room.

Twelve guest bedrooms boast architectural features of the last century with modern facilities for travellers and business guests. Offering suites, ensuite and standard rooms, all individually decorated with Australian antiques, eight open fireplaces and extensive gardens, Vacy Hall provides accommodation for the discerning traveller.

Vacy Hall is set in the historic More Estate of the early Toowoomba which offers self-guided walking tours , fascinating old streets and buildings and a popular antique district. Vacy Hall is only 300 metres from the heart of the garden city of Toowoomba and is close to shops, theatres and restaurants.

Vacy Hall is also ideal for small business meetings or reunions for families and friends as well as for weddings and honeymoon accommodation. Groups often book the entire building and Vacy Hall becomes their own ‘country house’ for a couple of days.

Ask about the two night/three day packages (which are popular gifts) when you phone or email to book a stay at Vacy Hall that you will always remember with pleasure.
