One of the best outdoor venues. It’s a short walk from the CBD through the gardens. On the river with a nice breeze. Compact venue with a great slope so you get a good view of the stage. Lots of food trucks. Really well set...More

The band Live put on a great show but this venue is crap for a concert. Can't see a thing, actually getting to it is a mission and after all the frustration you don't get to enjoy the show anyway!

This is a lovely setting, inside the Brisbane Botanic Gardens and bordering the Brisbane River. However, not so in inclement weather! I recently attended the Midnight Oil concert there. It rained for nearly the whole concert, thus it was cold and wet. Pretty unpleasant! Midnight...More

A great place for a concert - outdoors on a tropical night - when I have attended one there was drinks and food stands or you could bring a picnic

Hotel Diana at Woolloongabba is only 15 minutes walk across the footbridge over the river. Other than that anywhere around the Botanic gardens.
