The master-planned community of Springfield in the City of Ipswich has a lot to offer – whether you live there or you’re just visiting.

Splash around in the Southern Hemisphere’s biggest public lagoon.  Then shop up a storm at Orion Springfield Central – a village-style retail mecca that offers a few surprises.

It’s one of the few shopping centres to include an off-leash dog park – perfect for partner and pooch to while away an hour while the ‘better half’ does some shopping.

The centre is also part of Queensland’s electric superhighway – the longest network of electric vehicle charging stations in the world.

There are 3 dedicated stations for super-quick charging of your electric car.  No registration is required and topping up is absolutely free.

For more head-turning tech, drop into Springfield Library – also at Orion Springfield Central.

The library’s very cool Makerspace offers a range of amazing digital gadgetry – designed to tease out creativity in kids and adults.

Try your hand at kinetic sand play; the 3D printer; virtual reality games; and augmented reality.

If you’re idea of gaming involves the outdoors, head to Brookwater Golf Course.

This 18 hole course holds the reputation of being one of Australia’s best – and most challenging – golf links.

But an upgrade in 2016 has rendered this beautiful course much easier for the average golfer to play – with wider fairways; bigger greens; and softer bunkers.

If you pot a hole in one, take yourself off for a celebratory lunch at Brookwater Barista Kitchen and Bar.

Owners, Carolyn and Alex, have 30 years experience in hospitality and a passion for house-made pastries and other delicacies –  including Tasmanian salmon smoked and cured on the premises.

Springfield’s amazing Robelle Domain is a great place to end your day out in this surprising part of Ipswich.

The domain is 24 hectares of green space where nature and new ideas come together – including award-winning playgrounds; giant screens; and light towers for spectacular night-time displays.
