Brisbane's Best Venues

Throwing an event in Brisbane? Where can you hold it? At Brisk Fridge Truck Rentals, we’ve helped play a part in catering all kinds of events (big and small) in Brisbane through our short and long term refrigerated truck and van rentals and mobile cold rooms. In this post, we share some of the best Brisbane venues that showcase all that our city has to offer.

Brisbane Racing Club

For large events, the Brisbane Racing Club (Eagle farm racecourse and Doomben racecourse) is perfect! With over 7,000 square metres of space over two racecourses – there’s more than enough space to throw a gala, music festival, family fun day or other large festivity. The venue offers a blend of heritage character and charm coupled with contemporary style.

Brisbane Powerhouse

Situated along the Brisbane River in New Farm, this iconic venue is known to be Queensland’s home for contemporary culture. Offering now only a great backdrop of the Brisbane River, it feature event spaces designed for meetings, exhibitions, weddings, private parties, conference, product launches and more. The New Farm location gives it direct access to the city via bus or City Cat and it’s a short drive from the Brisbane airport. The Powerhouse is just one of the great venues where you know attendees will be able to enjoy and sample quintessential Aussie culture.

Customs House Brisbane

Regarded as one of Brisbane’s premier function venues, the prominent Queen Street location overlooks the river and the building itself is a sight to behold. Customs House has five event spaces, most with river views and all with natural light. The Long Room is great for larger functions. As it is the main feature on the building, it lies beneath the building’s huge copper dome with access to the Coles Myer balcony overlooking the river.


Southbank is almost synonymous with the venue that is QPAC (the Queensland Performing Arts Centre). Home to sell-out musicals, plays, ballets, operas and concerts – QPAC is the venue where culture certainly takes centre stage. With a variety of unique and versatile event spaces including the vast outdoor spaces of Melbourne Street and Playhouse greens (enjoy the subtropical climate Brisbane has to offer); and a front row seat view of Brisbane’s growing cityscape; QPAC is an ideal location to showcase all that Brisbane has to offer.

The Edge Brisbane

Like the other entries to this top list of venues exemplifying the best of what Brisbane has to offer, The Edge offers unique riverfront event and exhibition spaces. This multi-function venue in South Bank’s Cultural Precinct, is a popular choice for corporate events and conferences, exhibitions, trade shows, banquet dinners, workshops and theatre performances.
