It is now part of the Queensland Rail City network. It is the terminus for the Ipswich and Rosewood lines. It is located in the city of Ipswich in South East Queensland. It is also one of the few Citytrain stations with buildings built over itself for other purposes. The station is in Zone 7 of the TransLink integrated public transport system.
The station recorded a high rate of violent assaults in the 12 month period between March 2008 and March 2009.
The first railway station opened in Ipswich in 1865. In 1887, the station was completely rebuilt.
Plans were made for the station to be relocated to Darling Street in 1918, however never eventuated.
In 1978 a large office and retail complex (currently known as Ipswich Central Plaza) was built above the station and spanning both sides of Bell Street following the sale of air rights. The last remaining old platform and buildings were demolished in 1985.
