Amazing. Worth travelling from Sydney to see Swan Lake and the Triple Bill. Only problem is the lack of space between the seats for people with a disability.

It's a great theatre with a fully stocked bar and many cafés and restaurants to visit before you see a show. Easy parking and close to public transport.

Parking is a breeze, the centre has plenty of dining options before performances, toilets are clean and well-maintained, the bars run quickly and efficiently, staff friendly, seats comfortable. We have to travel 2 and a half hours to get here, and we always enjoy the day - even if sometimes the performances don't meet expectations. Yesterday, the American Ballet's Swan... More

This building reminds me of a cyclone shelter but it serves patrons well except the queue for the bathroom during interval was a mile long and we were lucky to get back in before the show continued. Make sure you get a parking voucher at the time of purchasing your tickets, it may seem expensive but it is worth it... More

Musicals, concerts (my all time favourite Eddie Vedder), plays, you name it, QPAC has it... I often drive to Brisbane from the Sunshine Coast to catch a show and I love it. I love the prepaid parking option, so I don't have to worry about that, the dining options in the area and the beautiful setting of the place. The... More

If you can get seats in the middle down the front of the second floor region or even in the wing section. The acoustics were excellent and the bar has a good range of wines and food.
