86 East Street‚ Ipswich City

If you’re looking for antiques and other collectibles and memorabilia, you can’t go past Ipswich Antique Centre in the Ipswich Central Business District. Occupying the Heritage-listed Uniting Church Central Memorial Hall, built-in 1895 and designed by renowned architect, George Brockwell Gill, the atmospheric retail centre is a treasure trove for antique lovers. As a bonus, it’s air-conditioned and has a large, free carpark.

After a year-long restoration, the thriving antique hub now lures visitors from near and far who can’t resist the “city antiques at country prices” ethos. Many Brisbane residents make the 40-minute trip to Ipswich especially to nab the unbeatable bargains. A towering exposed roof and stained glass windows set a conducive ambience as you stroll around looking for the ultimate buy, and there are around 15 regular, plus unique mini-mart dealers where anyone can hire a square metre or larger to show their approved wares.

Whether it’s vintage or estate jewellery, pottery, collectables, bric-a-brac, restoration products and paints, kitsch 1950s and ’60s items, or larger items such as Australian Colonial or Victorian English furniture, you can be guaranteed to find that special something at Ipswich Antique Centre.

Don't bother!

Looking forward to visiting but disappointed - antiques/collectables very overpriced, no vibe at all, and empty when we visited - definitely it needs some new stall holders and a bit of a jazz up! A... more »
