“Always have brilliant shows”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

I don't mind the price at QPAC because the shows are always great. Right next to Cultural Centre busway so transport is easy and cheap. They do have parking underneath as well. I can't remember which theatre it is but it has a really steep up stairs seating, bit scary for those of us afraid of heights.

“Great Variety of events, wonderful setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

Just love QPAC, there's always a wide variety of events on offer, so there's something for every taste. All the theatres are well laid out and comfortable. The location right on the river is just stunning and there is always a great vibe going on in the bars and eating areas. Good variety of food on offer to suit every pocket and pleasant, efficient service. Just been to see South Pacific which was stunning.

“Superb Performance Centre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

We live on the Gold Coasty and when we wish to see the latest in entertainment we naturally go to QPAC.The facilities are absolutely first class in that the everything you need is catered for. Ideal eating establishments from snacks to a la carte as well as the various auditoriums that are superb for producing the various forms of entertainment be it a stage play or a musical etc. The sound system is excellent even if you are seated well back..Particularly attractive to Gold Coasters as the train service to South Brisbane is great and delivers you vitually to the front door, Well done Brisbane Oneeye Queensland

“Top Class Venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

QPAC hosts a variety of performances across its many theatres and venues and is always pleasant to visit. The staff are friendly, the drink pricing is reasonable considering the "performaing arts" elite clientel and it is incredibly easy to access via public transport - much simpler to leave the car at home. The views out to theCBD over the river and the nearby ABC Building and Parklands are also lovely, particularly at night, as you wait for your event. There is a performing arts museum in the middle of the building for those interested and with spare time.

“Arts for all”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

QPAC has been an institution for years and it serves up an amazing variety of performers shows and events . Recently my Son had his schools end of year night there and patrons were treated as well as any guest on a premier night of a broadway musical- Kudos to you QPAC .
