Marburg

Urban

The historic village of Marburg, 15 minutes west of Ipswich, takes visitors back in time to an era when the town was the bustling hub of the local area. The streets are lined with beautifully restored heritage buildings including the old German Baptist Church, Bielefeld’s Store and the historic hotel built in 1879.

Just outside of town you will find the restored two-storey plantation style mansion named Woodlands of Marburg. Built in 1890, the mansion overlooks picturesque Marburg Valley and is surrounded by magnificent Jacaranda Trees and Bunya Pines.

Visitors to Marburg can enjoy exploring on foot. Look for the iconic Marburg Hotel (circa 1879); the Community Centre, formerly the town’s bank; Rosewood Scrub Historical Museum with lots of early photos of the area; old Bielefeld’s Store, now an antique centre; the old Police Station, courthouse and lock-up; and the Anglican cemetery, the resting place of many of the area’s pioneers.

The pretty villages of Haigslea and Rosewood nearby are also of historical interest and great places to linger a while and explore.
