Bring a picnic or grab something from the Queens Park Cafe during the day, but come ready to explore and enjoy. The Children's Playground is a favourite for kids of all ages with a flying fox, fixed model train and the revolutionary Liberty Swing, a new concept in playground equipment for people with disabilities allowing children in wheelchairs to enjoy a swing.
The Ipswich Nature Centre has exotic and native animals and kids can feed the farm animals at set times during the day. Then there's the world class Frank Manthey Bilby Burrow where endangered bilbies and spinifex hopping mice can be viewed through a specially designed enclosure.
The Environmental Education Centre shows how to be 'green' and has a wealth of information about other fun local action such as bush walks, bird watching spots, canoeing trips and picnic areas.
When in need of a quiet moment, the tranquil Japanese-themed Nerima Gardens is a calming cultural experience and a peaceful place to relax after a full day of active play. Both Nerima Gardens and the Nature Centre are closed on Mondays except during school holidays.
