Where is it: 10a Merle Finimore Avenue, Ipswich QLD 4305 (within the Queens Park precinct)
What’s it all about: A perfect place to satisfy your hunger while relaxing (or playing) in Ipswich’s fantastic Queens Park!
Tell me more: One of the best things about living in Queensland’s south east is the fantastic weather, and there’s no better way to take advantage of this than by visiting the wonderful public parks and gardens! One of our favourites is Queens Park in Ipswich – it has so much to offer, including an awesome café right within the park. Choose from a light snack or a hearty meal, fantastic cool drinks and wonderful coffees! It’s open everyday (except for some public holidays) so it’s a perfect option if you forget your picnic! It’s also great to visit the café just to enjoy the peaceful surrounds of the park and right next door there is an awesome little environmental centre where you can learn about the local environment.

What’s it all about: A lovely and intimate café which champions local produce and is proud of its local community!
Tell me more: With its name coming from a Greek word which roughly translates to a family or community group, Oikos is immensely proud to be supporting its local community by providing healthy and homely meals, a fantastic, friendly atmosphere and by using produce from the local regions!
Oikos’ coffees are just wonderful, but you can also choose from a lovely menu of healthy and tasty meal options, or a range fantastically colourful fresh juices which are hard to pass up! We tried out a couple of the bowls that they have on offer which are packed full of healthy fruit, grains and yoghurt – super tasty and the little guys loved them! And to complement the lovely atmosphere and tasty food, the service was fantastic too! Oikos is a lovely little café in the heart of Ipswich and it’s well worth stopping by!
