2012 - If you are following my 11,500km trip, our next TOWN is ROSEWOOD
Ipswich is Queensland's oldest provincial city.
Located only 40 minute's from central Brisbane it is the perfect place for a day's adventure.
There is the Greg Norman designed Golf course of the Brookwater Golf Club, a picturesque and challenging Championship course.
What I really like, is the city's rich history, discovering the city's graceful colonial homes, superb old churches and historic sandstone buildings, It is renowned for its architectural, natural and cultural heritage and proudly preserves more than 6000 heritage-listed sites.
You will see many different designs, either on a heritage walking tour or by
just driving around the city.
You can easily spend a full day here!
