"Today we had a most marvellous tour of QPAC. Our Tour Guide's knowledge of behind the scenes was amazing and it gave us all a great insight in to the running of a production and what actually happens behind the scenes. We had the most wonderful one and a half hours with Amanda, our guide. Our most sincere thanks for a truly great morning." Qantas Flight Hostess Club

Please note:

  • DISCOVERY TOUR:

    Tours are conducted Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings commencing between 9:30 am and 10:30 am to provide better access to the theatres that are available, prior to the evening performances. We try to avoid booking a tour on a Wednesday or Saturday due to the usually heavy load of matinees. Tours are not conducted on a Sunday or Public Holiday.
