Queensland Performing Arts Centre 30th Celebrations 

Queensland Performing Arts Centre

Since raising the curtain in 1985, QPAC has welcomed more than 20 million visitors and presented over 26,000 performances with more than one fifth of patrons attending free events. So take a bow Queensland! Thank you for inspiring 30 years of creating and sharing art at QPAC.

Happy birthday to us!
30 Years ago QPAC opened to great fanfare and ceremony           Over the course of three decades QPAC has become part of the fabric of Brisbane and a touchstone in the lives of many: those of you who saw your first live performance here; graduated from university in the Concert Hall; or simply had an incredible experience here.
