Food & Drink

Pumpyard Bar & Brewery

88 Limestone or “Pumpyard” as it was known as in the last half of the 1800’s, was Ipswich’s first source of water. The water was from a naturally occurring spring and the townsfolk at the time commented on the freshness and sweetness of the spring water. At the turn of the century in 1901 the site became the premier centre for technical education in Queensland. The Technical College was eventually abandoned in 2000 until purchased by Ipswich locals ; James and Tracey Long in 2013.

The vision of the new owners was to restore these heritage buildings to their former glory while providing a new modern use.

As part of this redevelopment 4 Hearts Brewery was created.

Planet Ark Power

Planet Ark

Planet Ark Power is a leading Australian renewable energy company focused on providing comprehensive clean energy solutions that help businesses and organisations slash electricity costs and build a sustainable energy future. Our expertly engineered systems reduce businesses’ grid-supplied energy and demand charges, replacing them with clean solar power, battery storage, microgrid technology and improved efficiency. Our micro-grid systems enable businesses to access the benefits of exporting energy to the grid, revenue streams from demand response and allow network operators to smooth specific sections of the grid.

At our heart, we’re an innovative engineering company with a remarkable depth of knowledge and experience in energy and solar power. Our team of engineers has decades of experience in the energy industry. We take a holistic approach to energy management, focusing on the commercial and industrial sectors, educational and health organisations and government facilities.

Founded as GoZERO Energy in 2014, we partnered with Planet Ark in 2017, one of the most trusted environmental brands in Australia. Today, as Planet Ark Power, we are among the fastest growing clean energy providers in the country. In 2019, with the celebrated launch of our revolutionary technology, eleXsys, at the World Energy Congress, GoZERO Energy took on this name to become eleXsys Energy.

Established in 1992, Planet Ark is one of Australia’s leading environmental behaviour change organisations with a focus on working collaboratively and positively. The Planet Ark brand has 86% national brand recognition in Australia and is listed in the top five most “ethical and sustainable brands”.

Planet Ark Power is an important initiative of Planet Ark encouraging a Low Carbon ecosystem by significantly growing commercial rooftop solar installations in Australia. Planet Ark has licensed GoZERO Energy Pty Ltd to trade as Planet Ark Power.

Planet Ark Power was founded to deliver large scale commercial rooftop solar installations to create a cleaner, greener distributed energy future.

We do this by transforming the economics of commercial rooftop with our solutions that overcome industry voltage regulation and overcome the restrictions regulating ZERO EXPORT of excess power.

The inability to export clean energy drastically reduces the ROI of rooftop solar and therefore the size of rooftop solar that is installed, that is – only a small portion of the roof is used.

With offices in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide, we have the capability to install systems almost anywhere in Australia.

The O’Reilly’s brand philosophy is to offer every guest “green” experiences whilst the company’s core operational values strongly support the history, heritage and education of the surrounding Lamington National Park.

The Park celebrated 100 years since gazetted in 2015 with the acknowledgement of Mick O’Reilly (Born 1893, Died 1979) as Queensland’s first paid park ranger. This philosophy is strongly embedded within the design, construction and daily operations and sustainability ethos of the entire property.

The third generation of O’Reilly family now enjoys this responsibility of managing the Retreat and Villa precinct, and have continued the transition of this iconic business into become a multi‐faceted award-winning organisation.
