One of the first steps identified (and indeed one of the most crucial) in the overall heritage program involved the need to undertake a comprehensive inventory of the City's heritage assets.

The resulting Ipswich Heritage Study had two principal aims:

  1. To identify, document and analyse places of cultural significance within the City of Ipswich.
  2. To make practical recommendations for the conservation and management of such places.

The University of Queensland was selected to undertake the study. A multidisciplinary team of 35 people, including practitioners with a wide range of expertise in the fields of history, architecture, town planning, archaeology, anthropology and engineering, undertook the study.

Each of the 27,000 rateable properties comprising the 122 km area of the former City of Ipswich were inspected in the field. The study was also comprehensive in its approach in that not only traditional sites of European cultural significance were studied but also indigenous sites and places of industrial significance. Industrial heritage was particularly targeted from the outset of the study due to the City's prominence as an early coal mining and manufacturing centre.

Expanded Ipswich Heritage Study

In 1995, the former Moreton Shire was amalgamated with the city of Ipswich, except for the township of Fernvale and part of the districts of Borallon and Minden which became part of Esk Shire and the suburb of Camira which became part of Brisbane City.

Buchanan Architects were commissoned in 1996 to carry out a survey of the cultural heritage significance of the former Moreton Shire area included within the City of Ipswich boundary.  The study of the former Moreton Shire area was required to follow the same basic principles as the 1992 Ipswich Heritage Study, and was to use the same basic format for the ensuing report.
