Saw the Lion King today. AMAZING!!!!!!! The venue was very comfortable, a bit chilly but I guess that's for the benefit of the performers as it there are very active and demanding roles. Not very well signposted so arrive with half an hour to spare.

We saw The Lion King at the Lyric Theatre in QPAC. Very comfortable and beautifully appointed theatre. We had side seats but a great view anyway. Dinner beforehand was easy in one of the little cafes at the entrance to QPAC. A real theatrical asset to the city!

QPAC has interesting and diverse shows, easy access and terrific parking, a good restaurant and you can buy your drinks ahead at one of the many bars for intermission. A very streamlined time out indeed.

Musicals, theatre, concerts, ceremonies - this place has them all. We attended our daughter's graduation last week in the Concert Hall, a very good venue for such proceedings. The sound and view is excellent. Parking after 6pm costs $15, pay as you enter. You always seem to be going up or down stairs or ramps in this building, can be... More

This is such a great complex to see many shows and acts. Parking is reasonably priced, the complex easy to navigate and crowds minimal considering. Very family friendly.

The cenbtre offers some good classic performances such as Les Miserables, My Fair Lady. It is close to the city centre and public bus stops/ train stations.
