QPAC always seems to be a great venue for entertainment. Our recent visit for a one off performance of some Beatles music was a great experience with great views tremendous acoustics and best of all is its location in Brisbane's Southbank with the many and varied restaurants, cafes and bars.

Well as the title suggests I've never been disappointed with any experience at QPAC. I try to go at ;east twice a year (depending on what's showing) and it's always clean, the ushers are polite and friendly. The only bad thing about QPAC are the people taking pictures during performances after being asked not to, but that's the people... Shame... More

QPAC continues to offer world class entertainment in a wonderful venue right near the city centre. It offers everything from opera, to rock shows, plays, symphony orchestras, ballets, children's matinees and chamber orchestras. It's worth checking out what is on when you are visiting. It's a very lovely venue with parking directly underneath.

Great show. Fabulous venue and the organisation of getting in and out is amazing. The sound is great and the seating is the very best...not only comfortable, but no effort in seeing the stage.
