Retire in Ipswich?

Looking to retire in Ipswich?

Located 40 minutes west of Brisbane, Ipswich is a city bursting with activities and family-friendly fun. It’s also a growing region incorporating Springfield, Springfield Lakes and South Ripley.

Motor racing fans can enjoy being close to regular action at Queensland Raceway at Willowbank, or re-live the joys of yesteryear steam powered travel with the Workshops Rail Museum.

There’s regular entertainment at the Ipswich Civic Centre, enjoy the excitement of local horse racing at the Ipswich Turf Club and your shopping needs are covered with Riverlink and Orion Springfield. You’ll also find a multitude of historic buildings and recreational spaces, including the nearby day & night driving range.

Plus, you’re less than an hour from Brisbane, giving you access to all the amenities of the city, while retreating to the quiet of your home when you have had enough.

There are dozens of parks and gardens and beautiful historic buildings to explore. Take the time out to search for one of the 276 species of birds, especially the prolific fairy wren, book a table at one of the growing list of restaurants and cafes popping up all over the region or grab 18 holes at one of the numerous golf clubs around.

However you want to live, Ipswich has something for everyone.
