Local Ipswich business, who have had a tough couple of years thanks to the pandemic and then the recent floods, are up-and-running again. While some businesses, who are located near the Brisbane and Bremer River remain closed for restoration work, many are open and looking forward to welcoming the Ipswich community back!
Many of our great restaurants and bars were not directly impacted by rising flood waters. Memories of India had some water reach the back of the heritage-listed pub, but they are now open again and trading.
