Ipswich Celebrates Street Food, Beer & Music at Pop Up Fest
To the southwest of Brisbane lies the City of Ipswich, which is the second oldest local government area in Queensland. After the enactment of the Municipalities Act of 1858, ninety-one people signed a petition to have Ipswich granted municipal town status. The Borough of Ipswich was proclaimed on 3rd March 1860 and the town's first elections were held in the following month where John Murphy became Ipswich's first Mayor. In 1904 Ipswich applied to become a City with this being granted on 1st December of the same year.
Today, Ipswich is a vibrant multicultural city with a rich history of architectural buildings and homes as well as being well-positioned among the Lockyer and Fassifern Valleys. Residents of Ipswich have come from 163 different countries and speak 152 languages. Ipswich has a population of approximately 210,000 people over 1090 square kilometres.
