video


This rare archival film footage (without sound) has just become available.

It shows a Special Meeting of the Ipswich City Council in 1960 to celebrate Ipswich's 100th anniversary of its proclamation as a municipality in March 1860 by the Governor of Queensland.

In 2010, Ipswich proudly celebrates its sesqui-centenary - 150 years of municipal government in the city.

Ipswich was the first municipality in Queensland established by the new Queensland Government following separation from New South Wales in December 1859.
