Absolutely fabulous performance. Li Cuxin is a legendary Artistic Director together this performance with Amy Hollingsworth as Creative Associate. We are so blessed to have him and his wife involved in the Ballet in Queensland. We hope they are around for many years to come.

Attend concerts, see exhibitions, participate in festivals, eat & drink in the eateries, explore the historical building, sit on the deck - great atmosphere all the time. Visit New Farm Park or walk along the river. Saturday morning markets are great for fresh food.

This place is seriously cool. Well designed to make the most of the old powerhouse. Saw a great show here - live music in a space that really suited the show. Loved it.

Parking is on site but very limited. You are better off parking near New Farm Park and get early to enjoy the pleasant walk
