Just 40 minutes to Brisbane and 60 minutes to the Gold Coast, Ipswich is a well-positioned region in South-East Queensland with good access to highways connecting Brisbane, Logan, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast.
Impressively, Ipswich preserves many historical buildings and homes; the city has more than 6000 listed sites. Ipswich historical suburbs are home to character, charm and history. However, buyer beware. Old colonial homes can harbour more problems than you may have bargained for.
On the other end of the spectrum, Ipswich is becoming more and more of an urban city with the continuous development around Springfield Lakes and Ripley. Regular building and pest inspection in Redbank Plains has brought our attention to the steady growth around this area too. Developments in Bellbird Park, Collingwood Park, Augustine Heights and Brookwater are also options for modern, family living that’s close to amenities.
Ipswich building inspections branch out west where you’ll find gorgeous rural towns like Rosewood and Marburg that provide a sense of being far away, with wide-open spaces and a farm or two. There is something for everyone in Ipswich, and it’s no wonder people are flocking to this popular city!
But be prepared for a temperature difference when you live in Ipswich. Ipswich tends to be hotter in summer and colder in winter than Brisbane, Gold Coast and Logan. Ipswich has a sub-tropical climate and is known for its severe storms during Summer and heavy downfalls, particularly those leading to the 2011 floods.
