Ipswich City is fortunate to have the Bremer River flowing through the city centre and the Brisbane River along our northern boundary. These rivers add enormous value to all residents of and visitors to our city. A number of creeks within Ipswich feed into both rivers and we encourage everyone to look after their local waterways to ensure they remain a healthy valuable resource in the long term for residents and our local wildlife.
