Flinders View, a residential suburb, is 4 km south-east of central Ipswich and immediately south of Raceview.

Until 1995 the boundary between Raceview and Flinders View was the same dividing line as between Ipswich City and Moreton Shire. The shire encouraged urban development along its municipal border, as it did for neighbouring Yamanto.

Urbanisation began in Flinders View in the 1980s, to some extent moving ahead of housing growth in Raceview. Local shops were opened in Ripley Road and a drive-in centre, Winston Glades, was opened in 1998 to the west of Ash Street. It has a supermarket and 20 other shops.

Educational facilities have not followed so readily, the nearest schools being found in Raceview, to the east, and in Churchill, to the west.

Flinders View has two parks with play facilities and a linear park along its western boundary, Deebing Creek. Development has been less in that area, part of which was once the site of the Ipswich sanitary depot off Briggs Road.
