Ipswich Council meeting marks 150 years
When Ipswich Mayor Paul Pisasale
opened his regular council meeting
last week councillors wore the garb of
the 1860s, commemorating the first
ever council meeting held in the town
of Ipswich on 12 April 1960. Dressed in
period costume the councillors traveled
in vintage cars from the old Ipswich
courthouse where the first meeting
was held to the Ipswich Civic Centre,
the venue for the 150th anniversary
The ceremony of the occasion was not
lost on the large crowd, which included
past mayors, descendants of Ipswich’s
founding families and petitioners who
campaigned for the city to become a
An estimated 1000 council meetings
have been held over the past 150 years.
Cr Pisasale said the celebrations
recognize the city’s history but also look
to the future. “ This is about where we’ve
been as a city but it’s also about our
exciting future,” he said.
Cr Pisasale was elected to Council in
March 1991 and has been Mayor since
March 2004. He said that the City of
Ipswich, proclaimed in December 1904,
had come of age and had transitioned
from a mines, railways and agriculture
centre into a technologically advanced
city, with commerce and education
infrastructure, a major defence base,
community services – and an excellent
lifestyle to boot.
Prior to the council meeting a new
mayoral chain was also dedicated.
“The new chain has all 49 mayors on
it, so we’re really taking our heritage
seriously,” he said.
The European history of Ipswich began
with the exploration of the Bremer
River in 1826 by Captain Patrick Logan,
the commandant of the convict
settlement at Brisbane.He discovered
hills of limestone along the banks of the
Bremer, and in the following year, sent
an overseer and five convicts to quarry
limestone and to erect a lime-burning
kiln. This settlement was known as
Limestone. This Ipswich owed its
foundation to the presence of mineable
limestone close to the Bremer River.
