Getting there

The Home Shows are held in the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, Merivale Street, South Bank. A modern, fully air-conditioned venue, you can also enjoy several lunch cafes and coffee bars.

We recommend using public transport to avoid traffic and parking hassles. Getting to the BCEC by train, bus or ferry is easy! Here are some tips:

Coming by train?

Catching a train is by far the quickest, most convenient way of getting to the Home Show. There are two train stations within a few minutes’ walk of the Exhibition Centre:
• South Brisbane Train Station, the closest to the Exhibition Centre.
• South Bank Train Station, nearby and accessed from Tribune Street. For all train, bus and ferry timetables to South Bank view
