If I want to see what is coming up in Brisbane that needs pre-planning and tickets, I always check out the QPAC website. We've seen a few shows there now including the Brian Cox, The Illusionists and Wicked. They have the technology, facilities and funding to be able to cater for the big performances with no other facility in Brisbane... More

Lots of steps for someone with difficulties. Saw Wicked. Sound was horrible. The first number, I could not understand a... More

Attended Wicked - fantastic show and impeccable performers. Another memorable night in Brisbane. The show was complimented by the restaurants, the location and the Brisbane River.

Been here several times and the seats are incredibly uncomfortable. I'll have to think twice before I bother to see another performance here. Time for a complete refurb of the concert hall!
