Our Venue

⸺ Escape to the outdoors

Green spaces as far as the eye can see

Cooby Reflections is a scenic 30-minute drive north from Toowoomba, or a 2-hour trip west from Brisbane through idyllic countryside views.

Our property boasts sprawling green spaces that span 50 acres — that's about five-and-a-half times as big as Federation Square in Melbourne or about 800 times as big as a tennis court!

From the moment you arrive, you will begin to feel a sense of calm sweep over you as you absorb all that nature has to offer here. We welcome you to explore the grounds and make yourself at home.

⸺ Panoramic Waterfront Views

An enchanting lakescape to inspire your stay

The beautiful Lake Cooby from which we've derived our name has played a significant part in many events, setting the scene of charm and romance for our guests.

Lake Cooby opened in 1942 and serves as safe water supply for the Toowoomba region. With a surface area spanning 3 km², the lake is tested regularly to ensure safety standards, and is also a flora and fauna reserve for natural wildlife.

This unique waterfront access also allows us to provide exciting water-based activities for our guests, including kayaking, canoeing, and sailing.

⸺ Loveday barn

Step into a piece of history

The estate that is now Cooby Reflections was formerly owned by the Loveday family in the early 1900s, and held in the family for many decades as a working farm. We are proud to be custodians of this historical site and fortunate to be part of preserving it for future generations to enjoy.

The original barn that was built some 100 years ago still remains here on the estate, which we have named "Loveday Barn" and refurbished with modern and practical touches alongside its original rustic aesthetic to make it a welcoming space for guests.

The Loveday Barn can comfortably fit around 60 guests and has access to BBQ and firepit facilities.
