USQ's Jazz, Wine & Blues

Playground at Queens Park Ipswich

What are your plans for the weekend?

Why not head out to Queens Park, Ipswich for Jazz, Wine and Blues.

The Festival forms part of the Ipswich Festival 2010, and starts
from 1pm Saturday going till late.

If you haven't already checked out Queens Park then you may very well have
missed out on one of the Great South East's best parks.

Bring the kids and a picnic blanket and enjoy some good old fashioned fun in Ipswich.

Queens Park, has a fabulous new cafe, so if you haven't time to pack a picnic lunch then grab
a bite to eat on the verandah, taking in views of the park.

Two words "Flying Fox". Very popular with the kids and the adults. Once you have had your fill of the Flying Fox, then take a walk over to the Animal Park. For a gold coin donation you can stroll through the animal park and see all sorts of local native animals. Kids can even get hands on with the baby farm animals in the petting zoo.

If you are after something a little more tranquil and reflective then the Japanese Gardens are
for you. Once you are calm and centred, then head back over the the main park and sit back and relax to your favourite jazz and blues tunes..... It doesn't get any cooler than this. If you are looking for some sophisticated deli treats, then its worth popping into "Fedup" on the corner of Limestone St and Thorn St, a short stroll from the Jazz and Blues Festival.

Just another reason why Peg & Kate call Ipswich home.

Hope to see you there.
