A wonderful way to cool down and enjoy the great outdoors in Ipswich is at Colleges Crossing Recreation Reserve. The crossing is a low-lying bridge that crosses the Brisbane River in the suburb of Chuwar, and this long-time favourite with locals and visitors has all you need for a relaxing day out for all ages.
With over 42 species and around 200 animals in care - dingoes, bilbies, wallabies, water dragons and a whole petting zoo - the Ipswich Nature Centre , located in beautiful Queens Park is an unmissable experience.
The Bremer River is at the heart of Ipswich, so the fantastic River Heart Parklands on its banks are aptly named. Enjoy the river breezes as you stroll through a mini rainforest, and past a cascading waterfall and sculpture pond.
