The Brisbane Powerhouse Arts Complex

The Brisbane Powerhouse is a contemporary multi-arts, dining and conference venue located at New Farm on the Brisbane River.

It used to be one of Brisbane's old power stations and when it was decommissioned, the government, rather than pull it down, turned into the venue it is today, housing various live theaters and a fabulous restaurant.

The outside is not very attractive and was purposely left so, but the inside is fabulous.

Sonya, our daughter has produced many shows there before her move to the Sydney Opera House.

  1. that is one Spartan exterior indeed , save for the entrance lobby, and I see they lease out roof-space for mobile phone anntenae

  2. Yep! One of the most hideous exteriors one would ever want to view. Reminds one of a maximum security jail ( gaol - for the other spellers) - Spandau, Germany, and KGB maximum security,USSR days, jails would look from the exterior as 5 star!
    Called "heritage" - thankfully after the initial shock, the interior is quite presentable!
    It's good that Bill is showing the "warts and all" views of Brisbane.
