10 Extraordinary Photo Spots in Ipswich

If you’ve never explored the city, you’re in for a treat. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of photo spots in Ipswich to take some Instagram-worthy snaps! Here are 10 of our favourites (this week!) from some incredibly talented photographers.

The Workshops Rail Museum

Ipswich gets some exceptional sunrises and sunsets. This one was taken through a fence behind The Workshops Rail Museum in North Ipswich by @getoutandwalk.


Speaking of sunrises, this phenomenal snap above was an early morning labour of love from Ian Barnes out at Willowbank.

There’s plenty of air force action and wildlife snaps to get around the city, @nicksteelephoto captured both simultaneously at Willowbank.

Lions Lookout

There are some terrific vantage points if you want a higher view of the city. This sunset photo was taken at Lions Lookout by Vicki Sloan Photography.

Mount Walker West

Some of the nicest rural landscapes can be found around Ipswich, as well as some photogenic old shacks from early settler days. Lyle Radford has managed to capture a colourful sunset surrounding a former school at Mount Walker West.

Cunningham’s Knoll

If you can’t afford a flight to Egypt, Ipswich has a mini pyramid of its own. Cunningham’s Knoll, opposite Queens Park, was built during the Great Depression, as a way to give men work. This snap from @yegz2.

Rosewood and Yamanto

If storm chasing is your thing, there are plenty of wonderful photo opportunities over Summer. Here is one from Mr S Photography around Rosewood and Yamanto.

St Mary’s Catholic Church

The heritage aspect of Ipswich means an abundance of historical buildings to photograph ad infinitum. Rob Crutcher Senior captured this interesting perspective of St Mary’s Catholic Church in the CBD.

Redbank Plains

Star trails are aplenty in the city. Micheal Kerwin has captured these ones overnight from his Redbank Plains rooftop.

Overlooking Ipswich

Catch the moment of daybreak from high with a Floating Images hot air balloon flight over Ipswich in the morning. The early start is worth the photographic opportunities.
