Public transport

The New Farm Park CityCat Jetty is a short 400m walk from Brisbane Powerhouse

The 195 and 196 bus services stop at the end of Brunswick Street at Oxlade Drive, on the East side of New Farm Park. The 199 bus stops at Merthyr Road and Hawthorne Street. Both stops are a short walk from Brisbane Powerhouse.

Brisbane Comedy Festival wants to help a brother out in 2018! Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday night, a courtesy bus will shuttle from Brisbane Powerhouse to Fortitude Valley. Departing every 15 minutes, you can catch the courtesy bus from 5pm-midnight on Friday and Saturday, and from 4pm-11pm on Sunday. You'll find the pick up and drop off point outside the Empire Hotel (corner Brunswick and Ann Street) in Fortitude Valley, and at the Lamington Street turning circle at Brisbane Powerhouse. So gather your buddies, and settle in for a night of comedy and good times.

We definitely endorse a cheeky taxi or Uber ride to give you time to enjoy a glass of wine or a bite to eat at Bar Alto or WATT before the show. The taxi zone is located inside the car park beside the Stores Building.

If you're planning on driving, get here early and give yourself time to find a park! The Brisbane Powerhouse car park has over 100 free car parks but parking around the area can be quite difficult once this fills up. During busy times we open a one way link road that connects to the New Farm Park car park that provides more than 200 additional car spaces, and is open until 11pm. Our hot tip would be to give New Farm Park a go before you try our car park. Bicycle racks are located outside the Stores Building and Brisbane Powerhouse.
