10 Reasons why Ipswich is the perfect place to host CMC Rocks

Discover Ipswich

Ipswich plays host to Australia’s biggest international country music festival each year, welcoming more than 20,000 visitors. Here in Ipswich we really are country at heart…

  1. There’s not many country artists that haven’t sung a song about whiskey – and we have a craft distillery making whiskey, rum and gin. The award-winning Imbibis Craft Distillery is the first local spirits distillery in Ipswich to make rum for 137 years. They are now brewing up whiskey with the help of local beer makers 4 Hearts Brewing.
  2. It’s wide open spaces that people say draws them to life on the land. It’s something Ipswich has in spades, with 8500 hectares of parks and reserves, to find it all, you only have to drive 30 minutes from Brisbane. Some places to feel a million miles away include camping in bush surroundings at Hardings Paddock and Ivory’s Rock. There’s also horse holding yards at Hardings Paddock with access to water. You can also enjoy sweeping valley views while staying at Woodlands of Marburg or Spicers Hidden Vale.
