Nothing quite beats listening to amazing music and sitting in one of the most beautiful amphitheater’s going around. Bonus points for the ability to still through the botanical gardens first...absolutely stunning even at night!!

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

I'm sorry I can't really answer that I've. I would contact the venue directly. And, I'd purchase some decent rain ponchos.
