Traffic Updates & Notices

Traffic and weather event updates that are likely to impact patrons attending performances

Be prepared to ensure you don’t miss the start of your performance

QPAC is located in a vibrant part of the city, with many events occurring, particularly on the weekends. Busy crowds, traffic changes and Queensland Rail track work can sometimes cause travel delays, which may affect your arrival time at QPAC. To avoid missing the start of your performance, we strongly suggest you plan your transport and leave home early to avoid any delays and arrive in good time to enjoy your show. 

  • Oz Comic-con – 21 to 22 September 2019

    Unleash your inner geek at Oz Comic-con and watch out for the crowds in cosplay at Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre 21-22 September.

  • Sunsuper Riverfire – Saturday, 28 September 2019

    Brisbane Festival will stage the spectacular Sunsuper Riverfire at South Bank from 7pm on Saturday 28 September 2019. There will be a number of road closures around QPAC on that afternoon and evening including Victoria Bridge (closed 2pm – 11pm) and Grey Street (closed 4pm – 11pm). The Goodwill Bridge will be closed to pedestrians between 4pm and 9.30pm. Kurilpa Bridge will remain open at all times.

    We anticipate that the Cultural Centre car parks will be full by 11am. Patrons who have pre-paid car parking will be able to access the car park via William Jolly Bridge and Stanley Place or via Montague Road and Stanley Place.

    Patrons travelling from the north will only be able to access the car park by travelling over the William Jolly Bridge and turning left into Stanley Place (height restriction of 2.3m applies).

    Patrons travelling from the south must travel via Cordelia Street, right into Montague Road and into Stanley Place (height restriction of 2.3m applies).

    All vehicles exiting from the QPAC, Queensland Museum and State Library car parks must exit via Stanley Place.

    There is no stopping all day in Grey Street and the taxi rank outside QPAC on Grey Street will be closed. Taxis will operate from the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre taxi rank in Glenelg Street. We strongly recommend you consider avoiding traffic and parking delays by taking public transport.

    In the interests of safety, all bags will be checked at entrances to the festival site. Easiest access through the security fencing for QPAC guests will be through the checkpoints closest to our building.

    Sunsuper Riverfire is a spectacular fireworks event and an important part of the Brisbane entertainment calendar. If you are attending an evening performance at QPAC that starts after 7pm, we recommend you plan to arrive early and watch the fireworks from your theatre foyer.
