A curious place in the riverside, you get there by Citycat, the fast boats that serve as bus. Plenty of options for food and walks.

Up from Sydney for the weekend, we went to the Powerhouse to see the building and it's art exhibition. Unfortunately there was no art on display as the venue now specializes in comedy review. However... besides that.. we had a lovely snack on the terrace which overlooks the river. It's very popular with the locals , families and visitors who... More

Often places with locations to die for get the rest of it wrong. The Powerhouse is the whole package. Good food, pleasant staff, affordable drinks and theatre that's the best in Brisbane. Highly recommended.

The Brisbane Powerhouse has many wonderful shows on, there is always something going on. I've been there with my husband, friends, grandkids, there's always something going on. Love to sit and have a meal there. The river is at your doorstep, the food is fine and the atmosphere is amazing - love it there!!!!

Went to see Frank Woodley at the Powerhouse last night. The venue is nice. Lots of "beautiful people"! Car park is very busy, difficult to get a park. Drinks are expensive. Enjoyed a pizza before the show. We shared between two to save a little money. Very nice. Lovely sitting outside overlooking the water. Some staff are great, others left... More

I frequently visit powerhouse and I have had a positive experience time and time again. Unlike many other agencies I find that the staff at powerhouse try hard to meet all my requirements and really go that extra mile. They often find ways around issues, and even if they can't they are nice about it. Never does the computer say... More

Had the luck of visiting the powerhouse with a dutch au-pair ( which is something else the just being the nanny, as she told me firmly ) We saw tubular bells for 2 which was superb, and wend back by ferry. Made lots of pictures of brisbane by night while passing underneath the bridge.

But everything is so expensive, is worth a look around the old building to see some cool graffiti but thats all you will get for free
