About the Ipswich & West Moreton Region
Ipswich & West Moreton is a fast-growing region in South East Queensland. Our QSEC regional area encompasses Ipswich City Council and parts of the Lockyer Valley, Scenic Rim and Somerset Regional Councils. The Ipswich city centre is the region’s main business district. It is situated on the Bremer River and approximately 40 kilometres west of the Brisbane central business district. Social enterprises in our area serve a geographically diverse population in some rural settings with main clusters of activity in small towns and multiple business districts.
