What you can expect

A key part of Brisbane’s excellent cultural district, the **Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC)** ranks as one of the top spots in Australia to take in live artistic performances. This excellently-designed venue is all about maximising viewing capabilities and providing spacious seating while hosting a wide range of performance styles ranging from dance to theatre, opera to comedy and more. QPAC has hosted a blend of local, national and international talent over the years including a number of big names on the world stage, while its performances have featured renditions of some of the most iconic names in theatre such as Les Miserables, The Phantom of the Opera, Chicago and various others. The complex contains a range of individual performance spaces each with their own benefits, and of which the Lyric Theatre is the largest and able to accommodate an audience of around 2,000 attendees. In Addition to its shows, QPAC also provides some top-quality dining opportunities via the Lyrebird restaurant which serves some wonderful contemporary Australian dishes to enjoy amongst lovely surrounds. Perhaps one of the biggest pluses about attending a show at QPAC, however, is its relative ease of access both before and after a show; there’s plenty of parking available as well as a close proximity to plenty of public transport options - add this to its central location in the city, and it makes getting to and from the venue far less painful than some similar live entertainment venues throughout the country.
