What travellers are saying
- We haven't been here in a very long time, and we were surprised at all of the improvements. We loved seeing the birds and animals. The bilby enclosure and the wombat were highlights.Written 7 June 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Our Veteran community had a wonderful time at the Llama Farm. Shane was very knowledgeable and was a great tour guide. Our whole group got to pat and feed Llamas, Camels, miniature horses, donkeys sheep, goats and they had peacocks and turkeys while walking around. Everyone had lots of fun while learning lots and was a great experience had by all.Written 7 October 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- There are some great hands-on exhibits, cutaway trains, and lots of educational mechanical displays. Plus lots more for the littler kids. Everything was commentated specifically for kids and there was excessive multimedia so you hear several going at once. I was excited when I saw the sign pointing to the workshops and collection but I don't know why they even let you into that foyer because the rest of the workshop and collection is closed off and you can't see any of it. By comparison, Thirlmere has five times as many trains on display and most have the interior accessible.Written 10 January 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- We are a pair of Kiwis who love the cycle trails in NZ so were excited when we found the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail as an activity close to where we are based. I could not find any organisations that would organise transfers/bike hire and accommodation so had to figure this out myself, this meant that we nearly didn’t do this activity. However, once I sat down, looked at the map and the websites for the Trail, Out There Cycling and Bike Hire company, it was relatively easy to piece together the weekend. We only had the weekend and were not bike fit, so Day 1, travelled from North Brisbane to Moore, picked up bike and panniers and rode to Esk (approx 50km), stopping at Toogoolawa for lunch and staying at Esk Grand Hotel (which we would also recommend). Day 2, booked transfers with Out There Cycling to Yarraman and cycled to Moore (where we had left our car). This was a great option for us. The section from Yarraman to Moore was our favourite - through a bit more bush than farmland. Blackbutt was busy and a huge queue at the bakery so we missed out on that experience. After cycling the trails in NZ, the only thing that got a bit tiresome and to be prepared for, is that where there were rail bridges, you need to cycle down the dip and up the other side - the rail bridges have not been converted to cycle bridges - often these are steep and for me, being not cycle fit, with panniers on, I had to get off and push up these bits - so it would be great if resurrecting the bridges was on the agenda for improvements to the cycle trail. Overall a lovely two days - hopefully we will get back to do the last 68km at some stage.Written 20 August 2023

- Love this area for walking, riding, doggy day out, grandchildren. So many options with pathways, toddler water park, swimming pools, many secret areas and parks. Has a cafe at pool. Great for birthdays or family get together. Has auditorium in middle for Xmas carols. Would highly recommend. Just bring a towel and hat for free day out.Written 11 November 2020

- We (teachers) took our year 2 classes here for an excursion, relating to our unit on animals, wildlife and life cycles. It was simply delightful. A professional tour through all the animals as well as an interactive experience in the educational center. We stopped for lunch in the big shady areas under trees and had a big play at the amazing park. Top day!Written 21 November 2022
- Excellent displays supported by knowledgeable and friendly people.
The aircraft are well displayed and there is plenty of room to roam around them.
You need to be aware it is located within an active Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) base and processes must be followed, but the RAAF personnel and the civvies in the museum make it easy to follow the processes.
Thanks to Renee for an enjoyable and informative visit.
NB: I was accompanied by an elderly mother who was well looked after by all.Written 6 December 2022
- What a fun morning for my grandson. Activities were interactive and challenging. The tape tunnel was extremely well thought out and constructed. So many places to explore. Pity it’s closing soon but get there if you can.Written 13 February 2020
- Thought this was very good, they had a few different animals inside, it's in a nice setting in the park and it is completely free to enter!Written 17 October 2022
- Wooow! Probably one of my favourite hikes to date. It's hard yakka but so worth the effort for all the views you get BEFORE the actual peak. Almost an hour from Brisbane and you do drive on a mostly 1-lane gravel road for a few kms before getting to the Picnic Area (check the Ipswich ?council page online if it actually is open as Ive heard they can close sometimes due to Weather issues). Note that there is no reception (at least not optus) on the drive in and at the picnic area but you do get some as you climb higher up the track. It doesnt open until 6am which kinda sucks cause i like starting super early especially due to heat. Thankfully no recent rain and I drive a 2wd so wasnt too bad driving however Id have probably turned back if it was wet at all.
The hike is pretty epic but lots of rocks and dusty dirt which made coming back down alot more difficult- I did fall once and very hard but I slipped like a billion times. So good grippy sturdy shoes are a must! Take your time and enjoy it... This had a lot of Firsts for me - boulder hopping, ridge walking, a slight wall climb which terrified me on the way back down not gon lie but made it that much more satisfying. Im like a camel I dont need a lot of water generally on hikes (idk why) but I did drink about 800ml on this one so be prepared if u know ull need it. I carried 3 litres tho lol. There are toilets in the picnic area but I only used the one in the nearby town Peak Crossing so not sure if it's any good.
I did in just under 4 hours😊 defs will do again in the cooler months altho wasnt too bad for a November day.Written 19 November 2023
- It was my first time at the drags and I loved it! There is heaps of parking, you can either park for free or pay $10/$5 a car to park inside the fence. Plenty of toilets and food vendors plus you can bring your own drinks and food. Plenty of rides for the kids. Make sure you bring an umbrella not just for the rain,you will need it for the sun aswell.there are grandstands you can sit on or you can bring a blanket and/or chairs to sit on the grass side. It really is a family fun filled day.Written 26 January 2020
- What a wonderful collection of antiques and collectables displayed beautifully and spaciously where you are not always frightened of bumping something. Housed in a beautiful, historic building adds to the experience.Written 19 July 2020
- St Mary's is a beautiful church that will long outlive the city of Ipswich.. the church is beautifully maintained and stands majestically..everyone who enjoys architecture or seeing old churches should visit.Written 3 May 2019
