Located ten minutes from the CBD in the suburb of Churchill, aeronautical themed Lobley Park is one of Ipswich’s most popular parks.
Dubbed the aeroplane park by locals, due to its aeronautical theme including a replica RAAF cargo plane and control tower (complete with x-ray machine and radar screen), this award-winning playground is appropriate for kids of all ages and abilities.
Sky blue pathways painted with cumulus clouds connect play areas; from the natural amphitheatre and interactive flower garden to the ‘parachute’ swings and bandstand.
Well-lit until late, Lobley Park is ideal for family and friends to get together for a picnic with plenty of shelters and electric barbecues available.
