Day Tripping in Marburg

The charming country township of Marburg, on the outskirts of Ipswich and less than an hour's drive from Brisbane, is a great place to spend a day (and a night). With fantastic antique shops to fossick through, a stately manor to dine at (and stay overnight), a gin distillery, hobby farm and creative outlet that can organise a bespoke picnic in the historic church grounds, there's plenty of reasons to go day tripping here:

The palatial historic mansion with 360 degree views of the Marburg Valley makes a great weekend escape
