The Ekka is all grown up... just like you
Move over kids, there's still plenty of fun to be had. Formally known as the Royal Queensland Show, each year the country mingles with the city. Most Queenslanders have a fond memory of the Ekka from their childhood. But now, it's time to make new memories. There's more to the exhibition than showbags and strawberry sundaes. It's time to revisit the Ekka, with your adult glasses on.
