If you want a nice, cultural evening, this is the place to go. It is conveniently reached by the Railway system. There is a convenient cafe within the center with decent food choices. The performance we saw, Swan Lake, was well done. Definitely worth considering.

Have been to several concerts here just in the last twelve months, and each and every experience has been wonderful. Parking is expensive, however access to and from the carpark is great. The interiors of the auditoriums are fabulous for sound, and all the staff (there are usually so many of them) are very willing to be of assistance. The courtyard area is lovely.

We have been visiting QPAC for many years, for school speech nights, musical theatre & many concerts & have always been blown away by the positive exprierence of attending a show there. From the very pleasant sales staff, easy online booking, next day ticket delivery to the excellently trained ushers & bar staff it always helps to make 'show night' a treat! The sound in the Concert Hall is superb, so much so that David Gates of ' the band Bread' once stopped a song midway through to comment on the sound quality. Onsite parking, bars & cafes makes the experience even easier. Last night we attended soul/funk band the Bamboos ft Tim Rogers at the Concert Hall & the whole place was 'rocking'. Bouquets to the wonderful staff who kindly allowed the crowd to shake their booties. Well done QPAC!

My wife and I came away from seeing this show at QPAC marvelling at the excellent performances by both Angela Lansbury (87 y.o.) and James Leslie Jones (82 y.o.). QPAC continue to provide first class entertainment year in year out.

We saw Sarah Blasko there just last week. Great experience, especially for my partner as it was his first visit. Nice pre-show dinner in the cafe/bistro downstairs which was reasonably priced given the venue.
