The southern boundary of the suburb follows the Bremer River. The Warrego Highway passes from east to west across the northern part of the suburb.[4]

Raymonds Hill is near the centre of the suburb (27°35′28″S 152°45′22″E / 27.5911°S 152.7561°E / -27.5911; 152.7561 (Raymonds Hill (neighbourhood))).[3] The hill itself peaks at 63 metres (207 ft) above sea level (27°35′26″S 152°45′29″E / 27.5906°S 152.7581°E / -27.5906; 152.7581 (Raymonds Hill (hill))).[5]

History

The suburb is so named because it is immediately north (across the Bremer River) from the centre of Ipswich.[4] Raymond Hill was named after the hill which in turn was named after early land holders J & R Raymond.[3][5]

North Ipswich is the birthplace of Queensland Rail. The original site is now the site of Riverlink shopping centre on The Terrace and the current site is used as a joint facility containing the Workshops Rail Museum. The suburb contains a large number of character and heritage listed houses, such as workers cottages that were home to the many railway workers.

Ipswich North State School opened on 5 July 1867 with girls and boys taught in separate rooms. In 1876 it split into two separate schools: Ipswich North Boys State School and Ipswich North Girls and Infants State School. In 1934 the two school were amalgamated to form Ipswich North State School once again.[6]

In November 1900, approx.150 allotments were advertised as "Railway Workshops Estate", to be auctioned by Cameron Brothers auctioneers.[7][8]

On 1 March 1902, auctioneer E. Bostock offered 77 blocks in the "New Workshops Estate", of which 48 sold on the day.[9][10] This estate was bounded by Albert Street to the west and north, by Tivoli Creek to the east, and Hill Street to the south.[11] At that time the Tivoli railway line passed through the estate from north to south; the land corridor still exists but is now used a pedestrian path.[4]

St Joseph's School opened on 13 August 1913.[12]

In 1923 12 allotments were advertised for sale by Jackson & Meyers on Saturday, 7 July 1923. This area was called the "Stirling Estate" and was resubdivisions of subdivisions 1 and 2 of Allotment 5 of Section 45 in the parish of Chuwar. The land was bounded by Waterworks Road and Simmons Road in North Ipswich and according to the real estate map was within 10 minutes of the Railway Workshops.[13][14][15] Later in 1923 it was advertised in the Queensland Times that there were still some allotments for sale.[16]

In the 2011 census the suburb recorded a population of 4,587.[17]

In the 2016 census, North Ipswich had a population of 4,515 people.[1]
