QPAC is part of the vibrant Queensland Cultural Centre, which is the arts and cultural hub of Brisbane.

Located just across the river from the Brisbane CBD, the Queensland Cultural Centre is home to the State’s leading arts and cultural institutions. These include the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art, the Queensland Museum and the State Library of Queensland.

Together with the South Bank Parklands, Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre and neighbouring institutions such as the Queensland Conservatorium, the Centre forms a concentration of cultural, educational, retail and recreational facilities. This collection of co-located cultural institutions on a single site is unique in Australia and rare worldwide.

Locals and tourists alike are attracted to the award-winning architecture, programs, exhibitions and events which attract millions of visitors each year.

Being centrally located in a vibrant part of the city, we strongly suggest you check for traffic updates before you visit. Plan your visit to QPAC in advance to ensure you don't miss the start of your performance.

Venue Security


The safety of QPAC visitors and staff is our highest priority. We’ve therefore updated our cloaking policy. This is to ensure everyone can safely enjoy their visit to QPAC.

Items larger than A4 must be left at the cloakroom

Signage, floor markings, bollards and staff will direct patrons to stand 1.5m apart when queuing for the cloakroom and hand sanitizer will be available to all patrons. Patrons will be encouraged to limit contact with staff during the cloaking process. 

Items such as backpacks and oversize items including large handbags and umbrellas present a trip hazard. They are not permitted within QPAC theatres.

To avoid delaying your entry to the theatre, we strongly encourage patrons to avoid bringing to QPAC any items larger than an A4 sheet of paper. Backpacks, umbrellas and items – including handbags – larger than A4, must be left at one of our cloakrooms.

A large bag is defined as measuring 30cm long and 21cm wide or larger. Moreover, it could be a bag that QPAC staff consider to be of an irregular size and which may create an unacceptable risk to the health and safety of patrons if permitted within QPAC theatres.

To ensure the safety and security of all patrons, QPAC reserves the right to inspect all bags and personal belongings that patrons wish to take into the theatres. Searches will be carried out courteously and discreetly.

Cloakrooms are located at each theatre. They are available to patrons with a valid ticket to a performance on that day.

If you are unsure whether a bag or other item needs to be cloaked, please seek guidance from QPAC cloakroom staff.
