About Ipswich

Discover Ipswich, Queensland’s time-honoured heritage region, packed with surprising new adventures – only 30 minutes from Brisbane.

It’s where historic homes meet culinary cool. Where the open road leads to beautiful countryside, dotted with unexpected delights. Where you can float high above the rolling hills and ranges in a hot air balloon, or chopper in for lunch at a hatted restaurant. Where museums mark the time and vineyards ramble from vale to vale.

The pioneering spirit remains alive in Ipswich, bringing a new wave of creativity to this beautiful heritage city.

Craft breweries let off steam in languid laneways, cheek by jowl with eclectic cafés. Art galleries invite you in for a breath of fresh air. Sculptured gardens amble through serene spaces and sprawling parks play host to the restless and the restful.

There’s a feeling in the air here, that every turn will uncover a new curiosity — and all you have to do is to be here in the moment. You’ll find diversion in diversity, with trails and tracks for motorheads and mountaineers, train lovers and theatre-goers, aviators and acrobats, ecologists and mixologists. It’s a place where you’re more than likely to encounter extraordinary experiences you were never expecting.

Discover why it’s never felt so young, and why you’ll feel it too.
