Queensland Cultural Centre Review

This sunny riverside hub is literally the cultural center of Brisbane, with a variety of world-class facilities nestled together amongst landscaped lawns and cafés. The world famous Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA) with its everchanging exhibitions and events is a must-visit, while a short stroll away the equally impressive Queensland Art Gallery, Queensland Museum, and Sciencentre offer attractions for both young and old. Meanwhile, you can't miss the green walls of the architecturally renowned State Library of Queensland (the giant scrabble board on Level 1 is always worth a visit), and across the road, the Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) bustles with concerts and stage shows. There's also a host of restaurants, cafés, shops selling quality gifts, art posters, books and cards, a ticketing agent (within QPAC), public-access computer terminals, and various interesting public spaces. Green Cabs (modern rickshaws) are a fun and unique way to get around and sightsee. From the Cultural Centre forecourt, they'll ferry passengers anywhere between West End and Fortitude Valley.
