Keira Billy and a tub among the gum trees

Country Queensland has never looked better than from the outdoor tub at Keira Billy cottage.

Located just 45 minutes from Brisbane and 15 minutes from Ipswich. It’s also a handy three-kilometres from the motorsport precinct at Willowbank. Keira Billy is a classic country escape where visitors can leave the city pace far behind.



It’s here, at Keira Farm that farmer Sandra Pegler is sharing the rural surrounds – and spectacular sunsets. Keira Billy, a two-bedroom cottage, sits on Sandra’s sheep and cattle property for people to share in the beauty of Keira Farm.



Keira Billy balances country charm with modern conveniences to offer a relaxing home away from home. Accordingly it comes complete with a fully equipped kitchen and bedrooms fitted with televisions.

There’s a third and even larger screen on the veranda. The veranda also boasts a large barbecue and an outlook across to rustic cattle yards. And while the cottage has a bathroom of its own, some might say the icing on the cake here is the outdoor bath. Here you can soak up the uninterrupted views through the gum trees to a mountain-studded far horizon. That’s the popular hiking destination, Flinders Goolman Conservation Estate your eyes are landing on.  As dusk falls on Keira Farm, there are fairy lights strung up above to ramp up the ambience.



If an evening under the stars is your cup of (billy) tea, there’s a fire pit out the front. Surrounded with log timber seating – for times when Queensland is not in drought and under fire restrictions.

Check the Keira Farm website for full details and bookings.
