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.

  • Traffic flow and road closures around QPAC

    From mid-July 2022 until 2024 road directions and access around QPAC and the Queensland Culture Centre will change due to ongoing Brisbane Metro construction. One of the most significant changes will be the permanent closure of Melbourne St between Grey St and Hope St to general vehicular traffic.

    Access to the Cultural Centre car parks and the QPAC drop off zone opposite the South Brisbane train station will be via Montague Road as seen on the map below.

    From 15 August the outbound bus services platform will move from the end of Victoria Bridge across to the other side of Grey St (Melbourne St, opposite Starbucks Coffee). Platform 2 and Platform 3 will remain in this location for the duration of the Brisbane Metro works. Services will continue to operate from this temporary location as per bus timetables.

  • Performing Arts Car Park is closed

    If you are driving to QPAC, please note that our Performing Arts Car Park (P1) unfortunately remains closed as we await repairs from flood damage. At this stage we are unable to confirm when the car park will reopen.

    Although our neighboring State Library and Art Gallery/Museum car parks are now open, and QPAC patrons are welcome to park in these, there is limited capacity. Due to these capacity issues, please note that all pre-paid tickets purchased for the QPAC car park will continue to be honoured at Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre (entry via Merivale St - best entry is P2). Please contact the Call Centre on 136 246 with any questions regarding the pre-paid parking.

    There is also a range of car parking options within walking distance of QPAC including the South Bank car park (entry via Little Stanley St) and a number of Secure Parking facilities (including SW1 on Cordelia St and Southpoint car park on Tribune St). The Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre (BCEC) car park is also close to QPAC, however this facility can become very busy on weekends due to events in the Centre.
