Peaks to Points – Ipswich Region
The Peaks to Points Festival is a biennial, regional, environmental festival that celebrates the natural areas on the south side of the Brisbane River from Flinders Peak in the west, to the points of Moreton Bay – Point Halloran, Wellington Point and Victoria Point. The festival aims to raise awareness of the importance of the creeks and natural areas of the region.
This year, there will be a treasure chest of kid-friendly events on offer including bushwalks, bird spotting, tree plantings, eco tours, orienteering and much more. If you want to experience the Ipswich region, then there’s plenty for you to tackle. Explore the great diversity of nature at night in White Rock in the Spring Mountain Conservation Estate with a special full moon bushwalk or gear up for a guided birdwalk at at Opossum Creek where you can find several species of birds, such as the gorgeous Yellow Eastern Robin. Go orienteering at Springfield with the whole family and pretend your Indiana Jones or hike Mount Grandchester and enjoy scenic views of the surrounding landscape whilst discovering fun facts about the area. If you really want to lend a helping hand to the environment, visit a dry rainforest, listen to whipbirds and help plant 400 native trees in Brookwater.
