Join us on a behind-the-scenes guided tour of Brisbane Powerhouse. Discover the history of our striking Modernist building, from the late 1920s when Brisbane Powerhouse supplied electricity for Brisbane’s tramway system, to when underground artists, performers and the homeless inhabited the ruins from the 1970’s to 2000, resulting in superb heritage-listed graffiti art. 

This comprehensive tour ventures backstage, an area normally reserved for staff and artists, where you might even hear a ghost story or two!

Each tour runs for an hour and are by appointment.
