What better location to study the intricacies and dynamic series of networks at play in the Creative Industries arena than in Brisbane. Recognised as both the arts capital and educational centre of Queensland, Brisbane is fast becoming a culturally diverse and world-renowned hub of creative activity.
Situated within both the key Creative and Education precincts at 75 Grey Street, the JMC Academy’s South Brisbane campus is prominently located adjacent to Queensland’s State Library, Art Gallery, Museum, and Performing Arts Centre.

Expanding on its current South Brisbane 3-storey campus is a new 8-floor, $10 million, state-of-the-art creative education facility at 69 Grey Street. This additional building includes a new library, expanded study areas, classrooms, creative collaborative spaces and additional break-out areas. Most anticipated however, is the addition of 17 fully equipped practice and ensemble rehearsal rooms spanning over 2-floors.
Its prime location makes it accessible by bus, rail and ferry and is a 5 minute walk from the Brisbane Mall and in close proximity to parking stations. It is also accessible by train directly from the Gold Coast.
A two minute stroll from the campus will take you into South Bank where students can enjoy a visit to the City Botanic Gardens, Sir Thomas Planetarium, Streets Beach (a manmade beach) in the South Bank Parklands, and the Maritime Museum.
Buses and trains run regularly to and from the campus and to nearby shopping, entertainment and regional attractions.
