July 25, 2017 Hotel Deals No Comments Email Email

With so much to see and do in Ipswich in spring, now is the perfect time to book an affordable family break.  Metro Hotel Ipswich International has just released a great value Family Getaway package* from $175 per night, with kids under 12 years staying and eating for free!

Ipswich offers visitors plenty to see and do this spring, including the Lego exhibition at Ipswich Art Gallery; the award-winning Workshop Rail Museum – birthplace of Queensland Rail; the Story Arts Festival of Children’s Literature held at multiple venues in Ipswich; Springloaded Trampoline park offering kids of all ages trampolining fun; Ipswich Nature Centre in Queens Park; Disney’s Beauty & the Beast at Ipswich Civic Centre; and the Queensland drag racing championships at Willowbank Raceway.

Ipswich is known for its local art and craft cottage industries, with an art gallery, markets and craft and antique stores centrally located close to the hotel, as well as in local townships nearby in the surrounding countryside.

In the beautiful surrounding countryside visitors can tee off on the Greg Norman designed Brookwater Golf Club or tour the spectacular vineyards to sample local wines. For those feeling adventurous, take a ride on a steam train or go bushwalking, canoeing, hot air ballooning or sky diving.

And when in Ipswich, Metro Hotel Ipswich International is the perfect place to stay, located in the centre of town. Overlooking pristine parklands, the hotel offers a wide range of accommodation to suit your needs, including one bedroom Serviced Apartments, and Superior and Deluxe rooms.

The hotel’s signature restaurant Harvest Restaurant & Bar serves a delicious a-la-carte menu that champions the produce of the region, from the Lockyer Valley to the Scenic Rim & Somerset.  After dinner cap off the night with a tasting tray at the neighbouring state of the art Four Hearts Pumpyard micro-brewery, set in a heritage red brick Victorian gem.

Ipswich is a great short break destination before continuing up or down the coast.  It is only a 30 minute drive from Brisbane and an hour’s drive from the Gold Coast and domestic and international air and sea ports.
