One thing is certain – Brisbane is a hotbed of cultural and creative offerings, festivals and events.

Lovers of comedy, musicals, live theatre and dance head to the Brisbane Powerhouse and QPAC. The Queensland Museum and QAGOMA offer free entry to permanent exhibitions. Fortitude Valley and West End are go-to destinations for local live music gigs and DJs, while international acts visit the Brisbane Entertainment Centre or Suncorp Stadium.
