Springfield Staycation

Staycations have become the new way to holiday.

And while many people in Brisbane flock to the usual hotspots like the Gold or Sunny Coast, it’s worth thinking a little ‘left of field’ for your next short break.

Springfield in the City of Ipswich has plenty of pleasant surprises for those seeking an easy and fun couple of days away.

It starts with finding the right base for your “mini-vay-cay”. Quest Springfield Central will make you feel right at home the moment you arrive.

Each self-contained apartment is equipped with the essential comforts and a few treats… just for good measure!

Guests are greeted with a welcome pack – including a Springfield Pilsner from local brewery Ballistic Beer Co.

Parking is also complimentary – along with coffee and croissants on arrival.

The friendly folk at Quest are just as generous with their suggestions for things to do and places to go in Springfield.

Shop up a storm at Orion Springfield Central; take a refreshing dip in Orion Lagoon; tee off at Brookwater Golf and Country Club; or dine at some of the best cafes in the region.

Raw Energy isn’t far from the hotel – on Yoga Way – and it’s a top place to fuel up before venturing further afield. The menu marries healthy with delicious – offering smoothies, juices and gluten-free meals.

Robelle Domain Park is another must-visit in Springfield. The 24 hectares of peaceful greenery is perfect for a stroll or picnic.

“Paint and Picnic” puts an artistic spin on your outdoor experience. The clever folk from Sip’n’Dip Ipswich put the fun into fine art with this creative experience that combines cheese, crackers, a glass ‘chardy’ (or your chosen tipple) and creativity! Paintbrush in one hand, glass of wine in the other – you’ll be guided by expert instructors to create a memorable work of art to take home.
