Went to see Wicked with my daughters. Wow - what a show. Fantastic music, cast, costumes and we laughed lots. I would highly recommend this show to young and old.

The Queensland Performing Arts Complex - QPAC, is a world class complex with several theatres. I have seen many shows at the complex and enjoyed some time wandering the parklands after a show and popping into one of the many bars around the area for an after show drink!. My advice would be to travel to the venue via public... More

Easy access from where we stayed ( Evolution Apartments) staff very accommodating, toilet queue at interval was a challenge as seems to be being a female. Champagne very expensive for a glass , but a wine wasn't so bad in price .

Really enjoyed our visit to the Performing arts centre, great play and very comfortable seating. The only minor blip on an otherwise lovely evening was that we had trouble finding the Lyrebird restaurant, but once found, we had a great pre theatre meal and were on our way to the theatre in plenty of time.

Went before a show and was underwhelmed by the experience. Expensive for what you got (crab linguine and I'm still wondering what happened to the crab!). Inadequate wine list (no chardonnay - wooded or unwooded - at all! Just the ubiquitious sav blanc and pinot grigio!). Shall not be in a hurry to return.

I was lucky to visit the QPAC to see the musical 'Wicked'. If possible, do not miss this amazing and exhilarating show. Drama, comedy, great singing and the costumes and sets were eye openers. Story of the Wicked Witch of the West and how she became so in the Wizard of Oz. Excellent entertainment.

Whether you are seeing a theatrical production or a rock show, QPAC is the best in Brisbane for viewing and sound quality. It's a touch of luxury on Southbank!
