Cultural Centre Busway Station is located in Brisbane, Australia serving the South Bank precinct. It is located directly south of Victoria Bridge and close to South Brisbane railway station. It opened on 23 October 2000 when the South East Busway opened to Woolloongabba.[1]

The station takes its name from its location within the Queensland Cultural Centre precinct. The platforms are accessible from the pedestrian bridge linking the Queensland Performing Arts Centre to the Queensland Museum and Queensland Art Gallery. The station is also close to the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre, Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University, Courier Mail Piazza and the western end of the South Bank Parklands.

It is served by 41 routes operated by Brisbane Transport and Clarks Logan City Bus Service as part of the TransLink network.[2]
