“Fantastic facility”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

This is a great facility with multiple theatres and world class performances. Brisbane is lucky to have such a facility, as part of the Southbank complex of entertainment areas. The restaurants in QPAC do let it down somewhat, no doubt these will get better over time.

Thank you for your kind words in relation to the QPAC theatres and performances. We are certainly very proud of them ourselves, but we love to hear that our audience enjoys visiting us as much as we love having them here. We appreciate your lovely review and are glad to hear that you enjoy coming to see us. Hopefully we will see you back here soon!

“A paradise for Art lovers!”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

At the amazing Queensland Performing Arts Centre we had the wonderful opportunity of attending a performance of the best dance company of the country: The Australian Ballet, in the wonderful choreography Manon, by Sir Kenneth McMillan, on Jules Massenet's music. The performance took place at the excellent Lyric Theatre. In case you visit Brisbane and are an Art lover, don't miss the chance of attending a play, an opera or a Ballet in this great place!

They are an exceptionally talented company and we are very glad that you were able to see Manon while it was here. Thank you once again for your kind words. We hope to see you back here again during your next Art Lover's sojourn.

“Illusionists 2.0”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

Went to the QPAC in January to see the Illusionists. QPAC is certainly a well refined centre with great facilities and friendly staff. Inside the seating arrangements are relatively good however leg room can be limited in some seats. Overall the ambience is terrific. I look forward to returning!

“wonderful new years eve concert”
Reviewed February 11, 2014

attended the New Years Eve concert at QPAC and also ate at the Lyrebird Restaurant. Very good food and wine and the prices werent too bad for a 4 star restaurant. QPAC has good parking for those attending a show, there is a great bar and lots of toilets too. All these make for a good visit.

“Great venue”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

We regularly visit QPAC to see musicals, theatre and ballet. It is in a fabulous location, easily assessable from the city and Southbank. Our most recent trip was to see "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" - FABULOUS! The staff are always friendly and helpful. QPAC is surrounded by eateries, bars and cafe's so there is no shortage of places to eat. A great venue, offering fabulous entertainment options
