Plan your visit
While we prepare to welcome you into our foyers, you can plan your perfect day or evening out at The Empire.
The Empire is located on the traditional lands of the Giabal, Jarowair and Western Wakka Wakka, in the heart of Toowoomba, at 56 Neil Street.
An easy 90 minute drive west of Brisbane, less than two and a half hours from the Gold Coast and a three hour scenic country drive from the Sunshine Coast, The Empire is perfectly situated in Toowoomba’s CBD.

Parking after 5:00pm Monday to Friday, after 11.30am on Saturday and all day Sunday is free of charge.
