The new go-to hotspot
Ipswich lies in the heart of South East Queensland, which is the country’s third-largest capital city region by population and home to around 3.5 million people.
Established in 1827 as Australia’s first provincial city, Ipswich is located approximately 40 kilometres south-west of the Brisbane CBD.
The Ipswich CBD has traditionally served as the centre of the region and contains many of the civic, health, administrative, employment, social and cultural functions typical of large urban areas.
It’s never been easier to get from A to B
The city enjoys direct links to the national road network and is situated only a 40-minute drive from Brisbane, or a 75-minute drive from the Gold Coast.
Trains depart regularly from Ipswich Station (on Bell Street, directly opposite Metro Ipswich Central) and access Brisbane in just over 50 minutes, while a number of major bus routes also depart from the Bell Street Interchange, both across the road from Nicholas St.
Air travel is also easily accessible, with Brisbane Airport only a 60-minute drive away.
