If you’re in the mood for an affordable and laid-back date, we have the perfect suggestion. Head over to Banjo’s Bakery Cafe in Ipswich, Bundamba, for sweet and savoury treats.

Once you’ve picked up some tasty goodies, make your way to the Swanbank Picnic & BBQ area, just a short 15-minute drive away.

Set against the backdrop of a serene lake and the breathtaking hues of a sunset, this spot offers a picturesque setting for your date. Take your pick from the numerous gazebos available, providing a cozy retreat, whether rain or shine. Convenient street parking ensures easy access to the gazebos, just a few steps away.

To add a touch of romance to your date, explore the nearby walkway along the water. It’s the perfect way to round off your experience with a leisurely and intimate stroll.

Pro tips to enhance your outing:

  1. Arm yourself with mosquito spray to ward off any uninvited guests.
  2. Opt for an earlier visit to Banjo’s to maximize your choices from their delightful range of sweet and savoury treats – options may become limited later in the day.

This date idea promises a delightful blend of delicious treats, scenic views, and a leisurely stroll – the perfect recipe for a memorable and budget-friendly day date in Ipswich.
