We have come up with three of our favourite family picnic spots in Ipswich and shared them with you. Pack a picnic of your favourite foods and head to one of these spots with your family. Bring cushions, blankets, some fun games to play, and settle in for a relaxing day of quality time spent with your family.
Located in the heart of Ipswich city lies Queens Park, the oldest park in Queensland. It’s one of the most breathtakingly gorgeous and tranquil family picnic spots in Queensland. The Japanese Nerima Gardens inside the park are just as stunning. Queens Park is an absolute must for anyone visiting Ipswich. There is even a free nature reserve in the middle of the park! The reserve is home to wombats, wallabies, emus and more. Both areas are well equipped for a successful family picnic. For those who fancy a café-style meal, the Queens Park café serves up a hearty brunch as well as an ample selection of ice creams on a hot summer’s day.

To the north of the Ipswich CBD lies the Kholo Gardens, a tranquil retreat featuring glorious gardens and subtropical rainforests, peaceful lily ponds, waterfalls and open space. Within the Gardens are many ideal family picnic spots. Importantly, there’s easy access to barbecues, picnic tables, and gazebos for that all important post-activity refuel.

Robelle Domain, Springfield Lakes, is a sprawling 24ha parkland set within Springfield Central Parklands.

You and the family will be able to cool off at the free-standing mini ‘aquativity’ water park or the expansive swimming lagoon. Please follow the link below for more information.
