We went to see a ballet. We found the theatre very accessible, the staff were helpful and it was easy to find our way around.

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.

Easy access by public transport and a well designed venue. We sat on the very front row in the Concert Hall for Diego el Cigala, and we loved the entire experience! So close to the performers and the sound was not too bad for such close proximity to one of the speakers on the stage. The staff members were helpful... More

Loved the play "The Last Confession" and loved staying at Rydges as it is so close to QPAC. Even the rain didn't matter too much as it is just a short walk.

I love this space the only thing I don't like is the chairs in the Lyric Theater (the only theater space I have been into). The arms make them small and uncomfortable. Otherwise a lovely venue with good facilities and great public transport close by.

We went to see the ballet "Red shoes" a show built on H.C.Andersen story and the moral is don't be greedy you end up a lone and lonely.

Hi Anna, Thank you for your feedback for The Red Shoes - the classic moralistic storyline is certainly still relevant. We're so glad you enjoyed it! Hope to see you again soon, The Team at QPAC More

Having performed in every space here, enjoyed a glass of wine and a meal at it's various venues, and seen countless shows, QPAC has moved and changed over the years. I remember it's opening (with limited electricity, due to power outages), it's flooding (amid a harrowing time for Brisbane) and the first time I performed on the Lyric stage. This... More
