HOTA precinct

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.

HOTA is the Gold Coast’s home of live performances, lake-side strolls, stargazing, cinema-watching, art, conversation and new-ideas.

There’s a unique outdoor stage in the parklands for live events, and indoors our two theatres feature performances from the very best national and international artists and theatre companies.

Two arthouse cinemas show a curated selection of blockbusters, foreign films, independent movies and documentaries and HOTA Café is a great place to relax and reconnect.

Outdoors our beautiful lake is a popular place to swim and our hidden adventure trail offers a never seen before view of Surfers Paradise.

And on 8 May 2021 we will open the doors of the brand new HOTA Gallery.

With a packed program of both ticketed and free events there’s so much happening here. Check out what’s on and plan your visit to HOTA, Home of the Arts.

Imagine a place where art captures your imagination. Where art is for everyone, where art is for life.

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.
