Customs House, one of Brisbane's heritage icons, is located on the river in the CBD. It is owned and operated by The University of Queensland as a cultural, educational and heritage facility. Behind the grand Corinthian columns you will find exquisite boardrooms, a stunning ballroom, seminar rooms, a licensed restaurant and UQ Information Office.
Customs House is regarded as one of Brisbane's premier function and restaurant venues.

The restaurant provides seating inside in beautiful heritage surroundings or outside on the terrace overlooking the river and the Story Bridge.Customs House is also the venue for the UQ School of Music Sunday Concert Series. As a visitor to Customs House, for business, pleasure, entertainment or as a sightseer, you will not be disappointed. You will be stimulated by a presence of the past and will enjoy the splendor of this magnificent building's origin.

The port of Brisbane grew quickly so in 1884 the Queensland government agreed to replace its existing Customs House at Petrie Bight, a modest single storey brick structure, with a much grander edifice.Its grand public space, The Long Room, is surmounted by a copper sheathed dome. With work commencing in 1886, this imposing and rare surviving masterpiece of the Colonial Architects Office took three years and £38,346 to build.
