Queensland Cultural Centre

Arts Queensland is the Trustee of Queensland’s Cultural Centre (the Centre). The Centre is the centrepiece of Queensland’s arts portfolio and occupies a prime location at Brisbane’s South Bank, adjacent to the city’s CBD. It is home to the State’s leading arts and cultural institutions:

This collection of co-located cultural institutions on a single site is unique in Australia and rare worldwide. Together with the South Bank Parklands, Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre and neighbouring institutions such as the Queensland Conservatorium, the Queensland Cultural Centre forms a concentration of cultural, educational, retail and recreational facilities.

The original buildings designed by Robin Gibson for Queensland’s Cultural Centre were recognised by the Queensland Heritage Council on 12 June 2015 for their cultural heritage significance. Arts Queensland commissioned a Conservation Management Plan to provide a framework to maintain the integrity of the Centre and inform future planning and investment.
