Here’s a great way you can support local businesses in these unusual times – order takeaway!
Your favourite restaurants are still open, and are a great alternative to braving the crowds at Woolies and Coles.
While there are many options available on Menulog and Uber Eats, these top rated Ipswich and Springfield restaurants are among the food options upping the takeaway game in the Heritage City.
Not all are available for delivery at the moment, but most can be pre-ordered and picked up from the venue – our tip is minimising contact and using a card to tap and go when you’re doing your pick up.
