West Ipswich is a relaxed suburb of Ipswich, bordered by Denmark Hill on the east and the Bremer River on the west. The area was originally called Limestone, after its major mining industry, but later renamed after the genteel English town. The area around West Ipswich is one of the earliest settled places in inland Queensland. Records show that a wooden church was erected in West Ipswich in 1840, suggesting that the area had been inhabited for some time before that. The booming prosperity of West Ipswich soon allowed a solid limestone church to be built, but the original foundationsof the wooden church can still be seen at the corner of Limestone and Ellenborough Streets. Situated just 40km from booming Brisbane, or an hour’s drive from the balmy Gold Coast, West Ipswich is perfectly positioned for work or play.
Explore one of the oldest churches in QLD
The Wesleyan church of 1858 is the oldest Queensland church to still be in regular use. It was built in a mid-Victorian Gothic style, with slit windows and prominent buttresses. It later had a Sunday school hall and living accommodation added in the 1870s. Built in an English countryside style, it sits incongruously amongst the jacaranda trees and tropical plants. It is still a working church, so visitors are welcome at any time.
