Just 35 minutes from downtown Brisbane, Ipswich, is a great place to visit. Ipswich is the ultimate heritage experience. As the State's oldest provincial city, and birthplace of Queensland Railways, Ipswich is renowned for its architectural, cultural and natural heritage.

Take the kids on their first steam train ride and then explore the world-class interactive railway museum known simply as 'The Workshops'. Discover the city's graceful colonial homes, superb old churches and historic sandstone buildings on a heritage walking tour. Check out the antique shops and craft cottages as you follow heritage trails through the country areas of Rosewood, Marburg and Grandchester.

Experience the best of City and Country. Learn to gypsy tap at an old-time country dance or dance to the latest techno music at a city club. Tuck into the enormous servings of a counter lunch at a charming country pub or the wide range of international cuisine on offer at the city's many restaurants. Spend time on a 9000 acre working cattle property or shop till you drop in one of the city's many large shopping centres. Discover the Art and Soul.

Ipswich is a flourishing arts centre, with a number of annual festivals highlighting the diverse range of cultures to be found in the area. Treat your senses to a new art experience at the Global Arts Link gallery where the kids can try their hand at electronic finger-painting while you take in the current exhibition, or ride the time machine in the Hall of Time.

Soothe the soul at a performance by an award-winning choir. Discover the sights that inspired Ipswich's Archibald Prize winner Davida Allen, or just take your sketch pad along and find your own inspiration in this magnificent heritage city.
