The Courier-Mail Piazza
Traditionally originating in the heart of historic Italian and Maltese cities, a piazza served a city square, where villagers spruiked market goods, civic proclamations were declared and where a strong sense of community flourished. South Bank’s community spirit is fostered with its very own piazza.
A wonderfully versatile open-air venue, The Courier-Mail Piazza encapsulates the effervescent Brisbane lifestyle, temperate evenings and gentle twilight. Nestled within South Bank's urban landscape and a constant hive of activity, The Courier-Mail Piazza is a perfect venue for all kinds of community events and performances.
It has an amphitheatre with a seating capacity of 2,158 and a floor dimension of 513 square metres. Channelling its Italian heritage, the amphitheatre seating is reminiscent of an impressive colosseum, with seating rising in layers from the central stage area.
