About
Welcome to the Nicholas Street Precinct - a destination with possibilities and opportunities. This new heart of Ipswich is an eclectic marketplace that brings the community together through culture, arts, events, restaurants and retail. With an exciting mix of cafes, and restaurants serving traditional Australian, Japanese, Mexican, Indian and Vietnamese cuisine, this is Ipswich's new dining destination, delighting visitors with flavours from across the globe. Think small plates, tapas, cocktails and wine tasting at The Rusty Nail, get your curry fix from Indian Mehfil, and try some of Janet’s handcrafted pork and chive dumplings from That Dumpling Place that will instantly transport you to streets of Shanghai. While you're here, drop into Sofia Nails and Spa, and Austhetica Oasis’ beauty and wellness suites, and be pampered. With HOYTS and The Commonwealth Hotel by Aushotels opening in 2024, Nicholas Street Precinct will soon become an entertainment hub for locals and tourists!

    Great place for food and family entertainment.
    Beautiful precinct. A good selection of restaurants offering a variety of food options. Nicely landscaped gardens are a great place for kids for kids to play. Car park is free for 3 hours and easy to access.

    Excellent space and events for the family
    Fantastic space and events. The handmade expo is a great way to spend the day with the family each month. Tunes in Tulmur is also great. All events are clean cut and family friendly. Attendance has started to grow over the last year as people realise how great the space and events are.

    Lunch with clients
    We regularly go to Tulmur Walk for lunch. Always a great choice of food at Bun Bun Bao, Sushi Hyo, and Zambrero and reasonably priced. Sometimes there's a bit of a wait but it is worth it.

    Fabulous Christmas event!
    Truly wonderful event for the whole family. We loved the food options available. The lighting was amazing and the projections on the buildings and bubbles along the walkway were fun elements. Loved the live entertainment. We spent a full two hours enjoying it all. Thank you for this community event!

    Christmas lights
    We visit each year and we love seeing the lights! Great atmosphere and it is really special for all ages. The music was great so festive, the staff helpful and there are food trucks and shops open as we went on a Sunday night.

    Family fun night out - movies under the stars
    Had a brilliant night out at Nicholas Street Precinct watching Elf for Christmas. It's a fun night out for family and friends, the kids get a real kick out of it. Free popcorn was handed out as well as Christmas hats and stickers. Thank you to the team there for arranging community events for everyone.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Love the architecture! Can’t wait to see what’s coming next ! The splash and play is really great for families and cafes are perfect for dates or catching up with friends. Very convenient with the huge carpark right underneath

Stumbled upon choir sounding grand and kids in water.
Super nice morning visit to our outstanding library.
I think just a practice run for the choir.

We always enjoy coming here for the delicious dumplings and other dishes. Everything is freshly cooked and it is not very expensive.
