Why you should Visit Ipswich - Holiday Activities in Ipswich

Ipswich is located Queensland, Australia. This town enjoys a subtropical climate and is a safe, friendly and multicultural city.


Balloon Riding Across Ipswich

Enjoy the adventure as you soar into the blue open space of Ipswich. Experience the heritage city of Ipswich from high above the clouds; nothing beats the panoramic view as you enjoy bird's eye vistas of the entire region including the Somerset countryside and Scenic Rim. If you are planning to travel to this part of the country, ensure to reserve your stay in a place that offers easy access to a plethora of attractions. Being a highly sought after tourist destination makes it easy for any visitor to find a great Ipswich hotel.


Ipswich Nature Centre

Located a mere 5 minutes away from accommodation such as Oaks Aspire Apartments, you will find an array of Australian wildlife at the Ipswich Nature Centre. Lush landscaped gardens are recreated to represent local flora communities. Built in 1936, this also houses Ipswich's very own zoo. You find a bunch of cute native animals including wombats, emus, wallabies, koalas, and reptiles. There is also a barn that the kids are bound to love. You find pigs, calves, guinea pigs and lambs here at the barn.


Explore the History of Rail in Ipswich

This one is focused on all members of the family; the Workshops Rail Museum is a definite must visit. This, in fact, is Australia's oldest workshop still functioning where you can experience heritage and culture within a fabulous interactive environment. On display are huge locomotive engines, humongous industrial machinery, and multimedia displays. Kids will love the themed displays such as 'Day out with Thomas' as well as the many other hands-on displays skillfully amalgamated within this living museum.


Plan your hike

If you are one of those people termed "mountain goat" and are always on the lookout for a scramble up a mountain, Flinders Peak in Ipswich is right up your alley. Flinders Peak actually offers two peaks for the eager one to conquer. If you are not too sure of making it to the top, there are plenty of scenic lookouts on a trail lower down, which makes for an easier hike.


Relax in The Lush Green Spaces

Being a city that is still not taken over by urbanization, Ipswich retains its quaint countryside charm that is emulated by the many green spaces that carpet most areas of the city. In fact, there are over 500 parks surrounding the Ipswich City and out of all, the Queens Park is perhaps the most popular. Apart from offering so much of green that does wonders to your soul, the park also has a fantastic playground and lots of free barbeque spots making it a perfect park for family picnics. Visitors can also enjoy free entry to the exotic Nerima Gardens as well as the Ipswich Nature Centre, both of which are located within the boundaries of the park.
