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.
There are a number exciting new construction projects underway in and around QPAC. For more info, click here.
Due to ongoing construction and roadworks around QPAC there are various changes to traffic conditions around the Centre and access to the Performing Arts (P1) car park.
With the permanent closure of Victoria Bridge and the Brisbane Metro Project construction, access to all Cultural Centre car parks is now only via Stanley Place. For a detailed map and directions, please visit our getting here page.
Sections of Grey Street adjacent to QPAC are also closed to allow for work on Brisbane Metro and the New Performing Arts Venue at QPAC. While two-way traffic will continue along Grey Street, capacity and speed limits will be decreased which may cause delays.
The footpath and southbound lane of Grey Street is closed between the QPAC pedestrian tunnel and Russell Street with pedestrians required to cross Grey St at the lights at Melbourne and Russell Streets.
Russell Street closed to public vehicles between 6:30am and 6:30pm Monday to Friday; drop-off of Playhouse patrons with mobility difficulties can still be made during this time via traffic controller.
Patron set down areas are located on Grey Street outside Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre and at the entrance to The Bistro at QPAC.Click here to view expanded map
From Monday, 31 May 2021 Grey St will close temporarily between 7pm to 5am in front of Queensland Museum (between the intersections of Grey St, Peel St and Stanley Pl and the intersection of Grey St and Melbourne St) for Brisbane Metro Project nightworks. The QPAC patron set down area southbound is still accessible during closure times via Melbourne St turning right into Grey St.
From Friday, 18 June 2021 through to Monday, 21 June 2021 there will be increased traffic in the South Bank and Cultural Precinct areas due to:
- A temporary closure of the Riverside Expressway, allowing for a major section of the Neville Bonner Bridge to be lifted into place. Traffic will close in both directions between Elizabeth St and Margaret St off-ramps from Friday evening until early Monday morning.
- The Regional Flavours South Bank opening event, Grazed + Grown 21, which will mean increased pedestrian and vehicle traffic in the area.
Please allow for possible slower travel times as you plan your travel to QPAC over this weekend.
We pay our respects to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ancestors of this land, their spirits and their legacy. The foundations laid by these ancestors - our First Nations Peoples - gives strength, inspiration and courage to current and future generations, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous, towards creating a better Queensland.
