    East Brisbane Bowls Club is run by Backbone Youth Arts, and proud to support a multitude of community events, performing arts, musicians, and host unique functions, events and parties.

    EBBC is a dynamic venue on the fringe of Brisbane City. Nestled in the parks along the riverfront, EBBC offers a unique relaxed atmosphere where the opportunities are endless. Internally, EBBC can be separated into two distinct spaces, or can be utilised in full. Externally, EBBC offers large rolling greens perfect for outdoor events. EBBC is a flexible, free-form space that can transform for your needs.

    During the week, EBBC is used by artists and community groups to meet, play, create and rehearse. On weekends, we open the bar and host a swag of unique events including live music, performances, cabaret, and special functions.
