Ideally positioned just a short drive from Brisbane, the Gold Coast and domestic and international air and sea ports, Ipswich is Queensland's oldest provincial city and also one of the most progressive. Currently one of the top 5 fastest-growing areas in the state*, the city is primed for a future of development and expansion, boasting 43% of available industrial land in South-East Queensland. Home to an educated and youthful population, modern infrastructure and sub-tropical climate, Ipswich presents promising business and lifestyle opportunities for prospective residents and investors. The city's thriving economy is currently driven by the following major industries:

  • manufacturing and construction
  • property and business services
  • retail trade
  • government, administration and defence
  • health and community services

As a key area within South-East Queensland's high-growth Western Corridor, the Queensland Government has recognised Ipswich as a major new urban growth centre, which will facilitate and accommodate much of the region's residential, business and industrial development.
