The saga continues with our third and final segment as we complete the trilogy.
If you’ve stuck it out this long I must commend you on your efforts.
Your digital fitness has exceeded all expectations. So let’s take those chiseled, stallion fingers and continue our marathon journey, clicking about the various places of Ipswich we’re all missing during these troubled times.
Brookwater Golf and Country Club
I know! We’ve been isolated so long now that we’d almost forgotten just how many unique destinations exist within our borders.
Brookwater Golf and Country Club is a premium golfing facility set in the tranquility of the Australian bush and you don’t even have to be a golfer to appreciate it. There’s a therapeutic element to moving through the green, back dropped with waterfalls and natural rock formations, simply of your own accord.
Rest assured no high velocity projectiles will be coming your way this time.
Ivory’s Rock Convention Centre
You’re probably going to be impressed when you click here.
It’s a pretty good shot, I would know, I picked it myself.
There’s also an Organic Markets and onsite accommodation if you’re after a low key over-nighter at the base of a mountain range.
Spring Lake Park
Lakes are always nice. Well this one is.
Located centrally in Springfield, it’s nice to go for a little wander about the edges and who knows, there might even be time for a spot of tennis on the side.
On second thought, that bit will have to wait but at the least we have this trekker collection to appease you for the moment.
A park fit for a queen is surely enough to accommodate us mortals and our petty quarrels.
It’s pretty enough at least, but you can see that for yourself by clicking right over here.
Oh and don’t forget to check out the café while you’re there, as an avid fan of eggs benny I can confirm it’s the place to be!
So this one kind of excited me to have a squiz at, because short of renting a V8 for a day this is pretty much the only way to get this close to the track.
Upon first glance, there’s not really too much to it but if you keep exploring, you may find that in fact all of Willowbank’s racing facilities have indeed been mapped for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy.
Splash ‘n’ Play Ripley
This is kind of a local secret, but over at Providence estate there’s an elegant little café overlooking a water park that is entirely open to the public.
Explore it in perhaps the only manner in which you will find it vacant: out of the lens of the street view camera, as it was on a warm sunny day two years ago.
Wiley Street BMX
For the first time, you don’t have to risk life and limb to appreciate the curves and contours of a BMX racing facility such as this.
Simply click, pan and zoom your way throughout and spare a thought for those of us who walked all these inclines and depressions, not completely upright for the duration of the ordeal.
Anabelle Street Park
If you weren’t already aware, Ipswich has a rather significant collection of green spaces sprinkled around the place.
I’ll be honest, it’s not one of our premier locations, but more an example of the everyday gems dotting the peripheries of our Heritage City.
Ironbark Ridge Vineyard
Oh that’s a nice view of Mt. Flinders. “Where”, you ask? Right over there behind all the wine! “Wine?” you whisper excitedly.
Why yes, exquisite, local, Ipswich wine for days. “Can I order in?” I hear you jitter. Well no, but you can sip apple juice and pretend. Yes do that. But click here first.
That’s a wrap ladies and gents. I hope this has eased some boredom or hopefully lightened a few people’s days during these tumultuous times.
