After the recent flood event Ipswich businesses are starting to get back to normal.
Some places, especially near the Brisbane and Bremer rivers will be closed as restoration works are undertaken, but there are many businesses open again and ready to welcome you back.
Find out what’s open below.
Restaurants are cooking again and bars are pouring…
Many of our great restaurants and bars were not directly impacted by rising flood waters. Memories of India had some water reach the back of the heritage-listed pub, but they are now open again and trading.
Now is a great time to visit the newly opened Ungermann Brothers Milk Bar, who are offering decadent desserts as well as burgers, fries and shakes.
