Man’s best friend has never been as important in our lives as now… Holiday with your best mate in the Heritage city and select from these pet friendly experiences.
Head to Joseph Brady Park
To start your adventure we’ll stop at Joseph Brady Park where you can bring your pup for a run around on a leash. Take a walk near the river which is home to swans and ducks.
Another great option is Colleges Crossing, that park is currently undergoing repairs due to flooding in February, however once they are complete you’ll be able to take your furry friend here again.
There’s also plenty of off-leash parks around Ipswich, have a look at the map below.
Barkley and Pips
Next head to Barkley and Pips for breakfast. The cafe has been designed for dogs and there is a play area, dog treats and grooming available here.
Now it’s time for a visit Queens Park. Queensland’s oldest designated park is a dog friendly location, just keep your pooch on a leash. You can visit most of the park with your pet including the bush chapel and well-maintained gardens around the glasshouse, the only places you can’t take your furry friend is inside Nerima Gardens and the Ipswich Nature Centre.
Check into pet-friendly accommodation
Then check into your accommodation for the night. There’s a couple of options for accommodation if you want a dog friendly stay in Ipswich. The Full Stop also known as the Dot House and The Flamin’ Galah house. Both have three bedrooms, a fully fenced yard and have been lovingly restored offering a modern and luxurious feel.
Visit the Pumpyard Bar and Brewery
Once you’ve settled in, head to Pumpyard Bar and Brewery for an early dinner and drinks. You can sit outside in the laneway with your pup, try a few of the locally made beers and indulge in epic burgers, pizza and beer food.
