Our City

 

Here at Crowne Real Estate, we take immense pride in the great City that we call home.

Centrally located in the booming south-east Queensland region of Australia, Ipswich is ideally positioned on the national road network – 30 minutes drive from Brisbane, 45 minutes drive from the Gold Coast and 45 minutes drive from domestic and international air and sea ports. To the east is the state capital of Brisbane, and to the west are the rural and agricultural areas of the Brisbane, Lockyer and Fassifern Valleys.

Ipswich comprises an area of 1090 square kms and has an estimated population of 191,000 people [July 2016] which is projected to skyrocket to 435,000 by the year 2031 . Ipswich enjoys a subtropical climate and is a safe, friendly and multicultural city, with residents coming from 115 different ethnic backgrounds and speaking 84 languages.

As Queensland’s oldest provincial city, Ipswich has a rich history and is renowned for its architectural, natural and cultural heritage. The city proudly preserves and still operates from many of its historical buildings and homes, with more than 6000 heritage-listed sites. There are also a range of charming townships within the western rural areas of the city, each with its own legitimate claims of historical significance.

Ipswich is an exciting place to live, work, invest and visit. Education plays an important role in the local economy, with two universities and a wide choice of private and state government schools.

All the modern facilities and attractions of a progressive city are on offer here. Attractions include the Ipswich Art Gallery, the Workshops Rail Museum, steam trains, more than 500 parks, wineries, cafes, restaurants, cinemas and shopping centres. If getting a birds eye view of the Ipswich region is something you fancy you can take a hot air balloon ride or a helicopter tour.

Ipswich hosts regular national and local festivals and events such as the Queensland Open Golf Championships, Ipswich Cup – the city’s annual major horse race, drag racing’s finest at the Winternationals held at Willowbank Raceway, Queensland 400 V8 supercars at Queensland Raceway, Ipswich Festival and Ipswich Show.

Ipswich is alive and leading the way in tourism, sport, industry, technology, education and residential development.
