The Queens Park Environmental Education Centre is housed next to the Queens Park Cafe in the center of the city's premier parkland. The Centre has many environmental education exhibits which showcase Ipswich's unique natural environment and waterways. The interactive displays connect you with nature in your home and around the city.
There is also an extensive array of information about Council's environmental initiatives, including:
Nestled among the prominent fig trees, the building itself is a great example to residents of environmental design features. Passive solar design and energy efficient measures make the most of natural lighting. Insulation, large overhangs and wide verandas provide protection from the western sun, reducing the reliance on air conditioning. The elevated structure allows for natural airflow and free water movement across the site.
