The Queensland Conservatorium at South Bank is acoustically and architecturally unparalleled in Australia. Situated in Queensland's vibrant cultural precinct, the Queensland Conservatorium enables students to enjoy strong partnerships with local cultural institutions. At the Gold Coast campus, there are six recording studios, four control rooms, a MIDI laboratory, and audio-visual postproduction studios, where graduates, including Wolfmother's Ian Peres, have learned their craft.
