Its situation on the side of a hill, a few blocks from the Ipswich shops in south-east Queensland, saved this pretty park from inundation in the 2011 floods.  This was particularly important as it is also home to a wheelchair accessible, free zoo (Ipswich Nature Centre), including wombats, bilbies, native birds and other wildlife. People wander freely through the landscaped grounds, following the smooth paths beside the ponds and stream as it meanders down the hillside. There is a nocturnal building with special lighting where the bilbies live, a walk-in aviary and a shed with some farm animals. Rangers are onsite for advise and assistance. Zoo hours are Tuesday to Sunday & Public Holidays (9:30am-4pm); Open 7 Days (9:30am-4pm) during School Holidays. 22 hectares in size, Queen's Park offers a large children's playground, with nearby parking, a flying fox, water play with a small channel for children to pump water along its length, a Liberty swing and a double slippery slide built into a small hill, so it is accessible to all and no risk of falling off it! There are also various swings and climbing options to keep a wide range of ages happy and seats around for adults to sit and watch them play. Much of the playground has a rubberised base to soften any falls which may occur. An accessible paved picnic area is located just above the playground, near some very old, large fig trees. Here there are push-button barbecues and public toilets are located further down the slope, set in a grassed area.   The easiest toilet facilities for people with disabilities to access can be found at the large kiosk, which is closer to the top of the hill between the entrance driveway and the barbecue area. This area is fully accessible with a ramped entrance, undercover seating in the kosk and designated parking and toilets.   Not far from the zoo section, another carpark saves tired feet and here is yet another pleasant surprise, with the beautiful and peaceful Nerima Gardens, (free entry but closed Mondays except school holidays), a walled, Japanese style garden with ponds and streams and all but a few of the paths accessible to people in wheelchairs. This garden is very popular with wedding parties and photographers.   A tennis, lawn bowls and croquet club are also located in the Queen's Park grounds. Park location is 10A Milford Street, Ipswich, Queensland. The main entrance is from the bottom of the park with a wide driveway which cuts up through the middle of the park with the zoo and Nerima Gardens on your left as you drive up the hill and the kiosk and playground to the left further up the hill. *

This park has a paths for bicycles/scooters, a skate bowl, some outdoor gym equipment, a shaded children's playground with rubber swings with backing for small people and a swing with seat belts for children with disabilities. (See photos). There is also a basketball court and lots and lots of grass, public toilets and shaded tables and bench seats.
Self-drive boat hire on the Noosa River behind the tennis court. A fantastic option for a small group wanting something different on the water but shady and accessible to those with limited mobility. The floating pontoon remains at the same height as the water level, making it relatively easy for someone in a wheelchair to access the flat-bottomed boat. The price includes fuel and 3hours will get you up to Lake Cootharaba and back or down to Noosa Heads. There is no toilet on the boat but there is a wheelchair accessible toilet just near the O-Boat jetty.

An extremely accessible parklands if driving, with wonderful views from the top of the escarpment looking back towards Brisbane. Several playgrounds with designated disability friendly parking and Cafe with a view open 7 days a week. The same area becomes a restaurant on Friday and Saturday nights. They do weddings and functions also and there are disability friendly toilet facilities both on the lower and upper levels. On the upper level, the room actually is labelled 'Mother's Room' because it also has a folding change table in there. (See images). There are smooth paths, shady picnic tables, lookouts and lovely gardens throughout the park and a drive-through option which leads to another viewing area.  There is also a rotunda near the playground closest to the cafe and this is often used for free entertainment such as bands playing.  There is a second large playground just before you leave the park on Heller Street.  This playground has paths to it and is worth a look, but is not particularly set up for children with disabilities although there is a low climbing wall which might be fun for children to help pull themselves up.
