The Box Office is open between 9am and 4.30pm, Monday to Friday, and one hour prior to each event. You’ll need to provide photo ID issued by government or an educational institution, such as driver’s licence or a student card. If you’re picking up tickets on behalf of someone else, you’ll also need written consent. If you have any questions or concerns, call us on (07) 4972 2822.

Before the Show

With so much to see and do around Gladstone, we recommend arriving a few hours before the show to explore our bustling city. Take an easy stroll to Gladstone Marina or visit the nearby Gladstone Regional Art Gallery & Museum or Gladstone Regional Library. Enjoy a meal at a nearby eatery, or a cheeky drink at one of the local bars.

We recommend heading to the GECC foyer one hour prior to your show or event starting. Enjoy a refreshment from the bar while you wait for the doors to open (usually 20 minutes before the show begins).

Feeling peckish? The bar has plenty of tasty treats, no bookings necessary. Please check the event web page closer to the show for full details of what will be on offer.

After the Show

Hate traffic? Why not stick around after the show and enjoy a drink at Lightbox. espresso & wine bar. Be tempted by a thoughtfully curated wine lists, creative cocktails, and delicious culinary options or head to one of the local bars or clubs located in the city’s CBD.  

When you’re ready to call it a night, head to the lower end of Goondoon Street, towards the water where you’ll find the taxi rank.
