During Your Visit

On arrival, visitors will find our Reception area in the Ian Potter Promenade, located on ground level off the Drake Street entrance. Through the end of the Ian Potter Promenade you’ll find the Talbot Theatre.

The Thomas Dixon Centre is also home to Queensland Ballet, so some areas of the building, such as practice studios, treatment rooms and offices, are closed to the public.

If you would like to leave your bags, coat, umbrella, or other small items with us during your visit or a performance, we have limited complimentary space available behind our reception desk.
