Its a great place for events. They do need to work on the use of microphones and speaker levels for interview type events though. Very nice setting. Staff were excellent and great service.

Went with the family to see the Gazillion Bubbles. We all loved it. Only disappointing thing was that they had closed all the bars...due to it being a 'kids' show.

We went to see 'Dirty Dancing' the musical in 2015 - despite being high up in the theatre we had a great view of the show. Definitely worth going to experience a show at QPAC! Easily accessible via trains with restaurants in walking distance from the theatre!

We walked to the QPAC from our Brisbane accommodation which was only 12 mins. We found the staff to be very friendly and also helpful, he approached us and asked if we wanted assistance locating our door/seats. Very happy with overall visit!
