A huge conglomeration of cultural institutions, the Queensland Cultural Center includes, most notably, the Queensland Performing Arts Centre, the Queensland Art Gallery, and the Gallery of Modern Art. The QPAC is home to Brisbane's ballet, opera, and symphony productions. The most prominent gallery in Australia, the Queensland Art Gallery is exhibits indigenous art pieces and outstanding work from around the Pacific, with a mission to establish human connections between the visitors and exhibits. The Gallery of Modern Art retains the same philosophical grounds, except with a focus on contemporary works. True fans of a culture's creativity and excellence should make this a must-do on their itineraries.
