We go to musicals,concerts and theatre. It is an excellent venue for all. I love the Queensland Symphony Orchestra in the Concert Hall. The sound is amazing and the organ is incredible on the occasions it is played.

QPAC is an exciting place to visit, such a wide range of entertainment to see. They cater for small children up to senior citizens and all inbetween. So easy to get there, train, bus and city cat, all of which is the best way to get there and avoid any traffic problems. Food is available at QPAC as well as... More

In summer on a Friday after work it is well worth going to QPAC for the jazz band in the gardens, having some drinks on a picnic rug and watching all the very dressed up people walk in to the theatre

Have been to QPAC on many occasions for a variety of shows and they never disappoint. The seating is what you would expect, comfortable but not built for larger people. If you do have someone in your party who has a few extra kg pick an aisle seat. Seating is ideal as you prebook the seats you want in advance.... More
