Fodor's Review

Housed in a former coal power station, the Heritage-listed Brisbane Powerhouse hosts frequent, often-free art exhibits and live performances in its flexible 200- and 400-seat theaters. Cafés, restaurants, bikeways, boardwalks, and picnic areas complement the spacious, contemporary art space, which also adjoins beautiful New Farm Park. A recent renovation added a new café-bar, a roof terrace, and enlarged theater spaces.
