Country charm close to the city

At , visitors can enjoy the big country experience without the big country drive - believe it or not!


Only 40 minutes drive west of Brisbane, Ipswich's Ripley Valley is in a state of transition. Formerly a small town and farming community, the region was slated for urban development in 2007. Ecco Ripley, a government response to forecast population growth, is set to be Australia's largest planned community.

The bridge between past and present is evident in the Providence residential community, a master-planned town that mixes small town charm with big city conveniences. This village setting is the location for a monthly market offering providing rustic goodies in a convenient location.

Popping up on the second Saturday of the month, host more than 60 stalls peddling handmade goods, homemade treats, and a veritable cornucopia of local and international food.

Even better - the markets run from 3pm until 8pm so there's no need to get up early!


The Splash'n'Play Adventure Park (Amity Way, Providence) lends a family-friendly vibe to proceedings, making the location dog friendly and wheelchair and pram accessible. The on-site water park is worth a visit on its own and you can read more about it here . If the watery attractions aren't enough to hold your child's attention, there's also a petting zoo, jumping castle and circus school at the markets.

For the adults, there's live music, a great selection of international foods stalls, and the seasonal menu at Forty West Cafe .

If you're interested in hosting a stall, prices start at $40 for a 3m x 3m general stall and $100 for a 3m x 3m food stall. Bookings can be made through the website .
