A - Z Guidebook - Ipswich Queensland


stunning street art in Ipswich   


I love street art, and I love owls so this beautiful artwork on a traffic signal box in the historic town of Ipswich made me leap out of the car (we had stopped ha ha!) and take a few photos.  I love that you can see the traffic light hanging over the street, and the typical old houses of the area in the background.  

Ipswich is still full of historic homes on big blocks of land, but this is expected to change very rapidly.  Ipswich is a massive growth area, and the population is expected to double in the next 15 years. So get in while you can, and check out the buildings before they become townhouses.  And don't forget to head along to the Ipswich Art Gallery which has been refurbished recently.  It is a fabulous building from the 1860's, with beautiful windows and a lovely scissor beam roof.

  3. This signal box look great all dressed up in its 'Day of The Dead' party gear. The owl is a bonus. Ipswich seems to have shaken off its Westie tag. Alas, I fear it is too late for Logan.
