Easy access and near the CBD. In the arts precinct so you can take in a show, have look at the art gallery and museum. All in one day. Excellent food alternative either in the complex or on the South Bank.

Whilst I loved the show I saw at the concert hall, I was very disappointed in the state of the complex. Antiquated toilets, faded and stained carpets, and damaged fixtures are just some of the maintenance issues. For Qld to attract the top shows and for this venue to be the stand out attraction that it was when it opened,... More

QPAC is the place to go for theatre in Brisbane. There is not a bad seat in this theatre. Restaurant and Café are pricey but it does make for a wonderful night out.

Fantastic live show, second half is better than the first but overall well worth the money. Qpac is easy to navigate and our seats were ideal. Not our first time here and won't be our last.

We generally get to QPAC at least five times a year. There are good ballets and shows on and there is always a variety of prices to pay. Comfortable theatres, great ambience and always a good weekend away in Brisbane

Walking distance to the CBD, restaurants and markets. The facility is comfortable viewing a show, although the staircases to get to various levels can be a little confusing.
