A recent visit to the Ipswich Art Gallery in Brisbane was a pleasant time spent viewing a variety of interesting works, some indigenous and heritage works. Especially interesting was the room displaying the history of the area with treasures from the lost castle of Blackstone Hill – Brynhyfryd. It was one of the most imposing buildings in Ipswich of its time. Although standing for less than 50 years, it made such an impression on the Ipswich community that its rise and fall became part of the city’s folklore. Brynhyfryd: lost castle of Blackstone Hill brings together a collection of objects from Brynhyfryd, including decorative objects, family heirlooms, furniture, and parts of the building retrieved from the demolition.
In other exhibitions beautiful hand painted cup and saucers detailing native flora.
