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.
Sunsuper Riverfire – Saturday 29 September 2018
Brisbane Festival will stage the spectacular Sunsuper Riverfire at South Bank from 7pm on Saturday 29 September 2018. 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 8pm. Kurilpa Bridge will remain open at all times.
We anticipate that the Cultural Centre car parks will be full from 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.
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.
