They say home is where the heart is…we say home is where the art is.

In tropical parklands with the Surfers Paradise skyline as the backdrop, HOTA Home of the Arts is a contemporary cultural precinct where art meets life.

We’re all about real events, real people and real experiences. Year round in our theatres, and on our award-winning Outdoor Stage, we take great delight in presenting live performances from some of the very best local, national and international artists.

In HOTA Gallery you’ll find a jam-packed program of exhibitions, immersive events, workshops and more.  And our two busy cinemas show blockbusters, arthouse films and documentaries seven days a week.

Outdoors our parklands are popular with locals and tourists, and every weekend you’ll find a riot of colour as the precinct fills up with of people hanging out, swimming in our lake, browsing the Farmers Market, and just enjoying being together in a hidden oasis, just a stone’s throw from Surfers Paradise.

Welcome to HOTA, Home of the Arts.


HOTA proudly acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we are situated, the Kombumerri families of the Yugambeh Language Region.

We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging, and recognise their continuing connections to the lands, waters and their extended communities throughout South East Queensland.
