The Royal Queensland Show, or ‘Ekka’, will be in Brisbane from August 10-19. Now’s your chance to try the farm life. As you and your family can take the time to meet farmers and the animals in the show.

But farm animals aren’t the only thing you can expect from Ekka, because it is so much more than that. There’s also music, bars, wood chopping, sideshow alleys and strawberry ice cream that are a must-try for first-time event goers.

Ekka is Queensland’s most beloved event. As it attracts more than 400,000 visitors every year. Everyone is encouraged to join the many competitions that will take place during the ten-day event.

For animal lovers, the Royal Queensland Show will have a variety of shows just for you, ranging from cat and dog shows to petting zoos with Llamas and more. It’s a great way to spend the day, no matter what day you choose to go.

Make plans to go to Ekka as early as now. Grab your tickets online, and make the necessary bookings as early as now. When you get to Brisbane, get a car hire service in Brisbane to make sure that you can get to the show with ease and have enough space to put everything on your drive back.
