Just 35 minutes from the State Capital of Brisbane lies one of Queensland's most progressive regional centres and the state's oldest provincial city - Ipswich. Ipswich blends progress with heritage and amid new developments and infrastructure there are substantial reminders of a grand colonial past that stretches back to 1827. The city lies along the banks of the Bremer River, the waterway that established Ipswich as an important river port during the 1840's, delivering the produce of the Darling Downs to Brisbane.
That enviable architectural heritage is not only intact as an intrinsic part of the streetscapes of Ipswich but is also celebrated in heritage trails, galleries and The Workshops Rail Museum, housed in the original Victorian period structures.
