Ipswich

Ipswich as a tourist destination has much to offer visitors who want to savour a rich heritage and cultural activities, have some adrenalin-charged adventure, bask in the great outdoors or attend some of Queensland’s biggest events. It’s all here in the thriving provincial city just 40 minutes’ drive from Brisbane City.

Renowned for its beautiful sprawling homes and public buildings with historical significance, Ipswich has some wonderful heritage trail tours so you can explore the city and beyond. The region is also rich with picturesque natural areas where you can walk, hike or bike, with tracks suitable for any skill level. And make sure you pop in to the award-winning Ipswich Art Gallery and The Workshops Rail Museum.

If you’re up for a physical challenge or fast thrills, Ipswich has all sorts of experiences on offer, whether it’s to get behind the wheel of a race-prepared V8, as a passenger in a purpose-built rail dragster, or hitting the clouds with a hot air balloon or helicopter flight. Then there are the major annual sell-out events such as CMC Rocks Queensland, Winternationals and V8 Supercars motorsport events, and Ipswich Cup horse race. You’re certainly spoilt for choice!
