Denmark Hill Conservation Reserve

National Parks and Reserves

It’s not often you get an unspoiled natural wonderland in the heart of a city, but Denmark Hill Conservation Reserve in Ipswich Central is an idyllic environmental gem. Once you descend the walking tracks amid huge native trees, you completely forget that you’re just a few minutes away from the city’s main streets. It’s a popular place for bird watchers, with owls, kookaburras, wrens, finches and others making their homes there.

Just head up to Denmark Hill overlooking the Central Business District, and you’ll find this hideaway for nature lovers. You will have your choice of walking circuits that range from 200 to 800 metres. It’s a relaxing walk down to a children’s play area with barbecues and picnic tables.

Like many other attractions in Ipswich, Denmark Hill Conservation Reserve has a prolific history. Established as a reserve in the 1880s, it sits above closed-off mine tunnels, with part of the walking trails following the former coal-skip tramway.

Please note that public access to the water tower has been closed indefinitely by Queensland Urban Utilities.
