Ipswich in Summer 22-23

Message from Mayor Teresa Harding

Summer is a time for coming together with friends and family. For holidays, Christmas and the start of a brand new year. As we have moved into our third La Nina, our community prepares for more rain and an elevated risk of flood. We are asking residents to be as prepared as possible and have a plan in place. Download the BOM Weather App on your phone and subscribe to the Ipswich Disaster Dashboard to access the most up-to-date emergency information. Recovery efforts continue with ongoing repairs of roads, infrastructure, sporting fields and the voluntary buybacks underway. Heading into the holiday period there are plenty of activities for the children in Tulmur Place, Ipswich Libraries, our conservation estates and more. This is also a timely reminder that keeping safe in the pool or when enjoying local waterways should be a priority for everyone. Council runs learn to swim programs across the city – visit council’s website for details. The Ipswich Civic Centre has some great shows across summer including a best of the Bee Gees show which Front cover: For a dazzling night out, check out Ipswich’s Top of Town for great food and drinks.
