A couple’s mini break – a mini drive from Brisbane

Need a couple’s mini break away from the city pace? For those in Brisbane, the Gold Coast or Toowoomba, the Ipswich region on their doorstep has unspoilt natural vistas to explore and beautiful places to dine or kick back and stay a while.

Let beautiful Spicers Hidden Vale be your base as you explore what the Ipswich region has to offer.

Spicers has its own vast expanses of unspoilt bushland threaded with biking and hiking tracks, and luxury accommodation to return to when you’re ready for a rest. Relax on the veranda and let your eyes land on a far horizon. Award-winning Homage restaurant is on site here too.

Among the region’s many other gems waiting to be explored are White Rock – Spring Mountain Conservation Estate, Kholo Gardens, Woodlands of Marburg, and the restaurant and cafe scene of Ipswich city itself. And all just a few minutes from home.
