Unique Ipswich experiences on offer with Peaks to Points Festival

More than 50 free and low-cost activities will fill a two-week program when the Peaks to Points Festival returns to Ipswich and South-East Queensland.

Environment and Sustainability Committee Chairperson Councillor Jim Madden said council had been a proud supporter of this biennial regional festival for some time.

“Peaks to Points Festival is an opportunity for waterway catchment and environmental community groups on the southern side of the Brisbane River to showcase their work improving the natural environment,” Cr Madden said.

“Council will offer unique experiences and hands-on activities to be part of the program which runs from 20 July to 4 August.”

Cr Madden said council would host an event at the Enviroplan-funded Kholo Enviroplan Reserve, known locally as ‘Cameron’s Scrub’ – a special conservation area normally closed to public access.

“This will be a rare opportunity to take a guided bird walk in stunning surrounds, and habitat for notable species such as Black-breasted button quail and White-bellied sea eagle,” Cr Madden said.

Cr Madden said National Tree Day was included in the festival, with two events being hosted at Tite Family Park, Bundamba and Cribb Park, North Ipswich.

“These planting events both support the restoration of important Ipswich waterways and are a great way to give back to our environment through Peaks to Points Festival,” Cr Madden said.

Cr Madden said a Tallegalla property, which was also a partner in council’s Land for Wildlife conservation program, would host an open day with a native plant sale.

“These events are just a sample of the many exciting celebrations and events that will be happening in Ipswich and across Brisbane, Logan and Redlands,” Cr Madden said.
