The venue

Built in 1975 and opened by then Prime Minister Gough Whitlam, Ipswich Civic Centre is seen by the community as the cultural hub of the city and the leading cultural destination for visitors. With multiple levels and four function rooms, including the 760 seat Auditorium, the Civic Centre is a versatile venue for performances and events. Find us in the heart of the Ipswich CBD, close to cafés and parks, just a short walk from Ipswich Railway Station and bus stops.


There is wheelchair access for all functions and performances to the three lower level function rooms and to the George Hogg Auditorium. We ask that you discuss your needs and wheelchair ticketing options with your ticketing officer when booking to ensure we can offer you the best service on the day of your visit.


There are a limited number of on-site carparks available at the venue. In addition to this, after hours off-street parking is available in Council’s car parks at 45 Roderick Street and in Foote Lane. Limited on-street (metered) parking is available on surrounding streets, including Limestone, Nicholas, South, Roderick and Ellenborough Streets.


Open two-hours before selected shows for relaxed dining and family friendly options, you can order a variety of light meals, wine and Nespresso coffee, or a main meal up to 30-minutes before showtime.
