Discover Ipswich

You only have to venture 30 minutes from Brisbane to discover Queensland’s time-honoured heritage region, packed with surprising new adventures. It’s where historic homes meet culinary cool. Where the open road leads to beautiful countryside, dotted with unexpected delights. Where you can float high above the rolling hills and ranges in a hot air balloon, or chopper in for lunch at a hatted restaurant. Where museums mark the time and vineyards ramble from vale to vale. The pioneering spirit remains alive in Ipswich, bringing a new wave of creativity to this beautiful heritage city. Discover why it’s never felt so young, and why you’ll feel it too!
