About Ipswich

About Ipswich …

Ipswich is fast becoming one of Queensland’s most desirable places to live, work, play and invest. By 2031 our population will grow to well over 435,000 people.

Ipswich is centrally located in the booming SE Queensland region of Australia. To the east is Brisbane, and to the west are the rural and agricultural areas of the Brisbane, Lockyer and Fassifern Valleys. The city is ideally positioned on the national road network : 40 minutes drive from Brisbane, an hours drive from the Gold Coast, domestic and international air and sea ports.

As Queensland’s oldest provincial City (officially proclaimed a City in 1904), Ipswich has a rich history. It is renowned for its architectural, natural and cultural heritage. Ipswich proudly preserves and still operates from many of its historical buildings and homes, with more than 6,000 heritage-listed sites. Ipswich also has a range of charming townships within the western rural areas of the city, each with its own legitimate claims of historical significance. Ipswich enjoys a subtropical climate and is an exciting place to live, work, invest and visit. Education plays an important role in the local economy with two universities and a wide choice of private and state government schools.
