We respectfully acknowledge the traditional custodians of the lands where the Brisbane Showgrounds is located and would like to pay our respects to their Elders, past and present.

 Explore the history of the 145 year old Brisbane Showgrounds by visiting our 12 heritage trail points, from iconic grandstands to animal pavilions.

 The Brisbane Showgrounds is gaining a reputation as one of Brisbane’s most notable art precincts. You’ll find murals, neon art, punch metal art and more in the precinct, displaying our proud history and enhancing our cultural heritage.

The Tivoli  

The Tivoli Theatre is located directly across the road from the Royal International Convention Centre. Originally built as Adams Bakery in 1917 and later used by the State Library to store rare books, the building has a more than 100 year history. Today, The Tivoli retains its stunning art deco features and plays host to many Australian musicians and performers. Catch a show or learn more about the building’s history.
