Ekka Reviews & Ratings
The show day is usually fun experience. Definitely will be here again next year
One a year the greatest show comes to Brisbane it's called the Ekka something for everyone from dagwood dog to cheese toasties and of course the night show you can't miss this one
Love the experience I had during EKKA. I came there on weekday to avoid the weekend crowd and I was lucky that I really enjoy all shows as well as the foods inside. I am so much in Love with their Sundae Ice Cream. As an international traveller, I would say that their Strawberry Sundae Ice Cream is the best in the world :) I could barely stop buying more and more. Don’t forget to stay till the evening for they have a great shows in the main attraction stage, the horse and monster car shows as well as others with great fireworks along with the show.
Great family day. You can spend as much or as little as you like. Reasonably priced food. Dagwood dogs $6 to $7. The ones across from the convention centre are the best. You must have a strawberry ice-cream fresh berries in the special lick ice-cream. Wood chopping has a new marquee no more sitting out in the hot midday sun.
It is a good place to visit, especially for family trip. You can introduce farming products to your beloved children while enjoying lots of amazing recreation spots. Do not forget to book a ticket like weeks earlier before your visiting day. Though you can buy the ticket on the spot, buying ones in advance would be recommended. My tips: 1. Always bring your own bottle of water and outing kits (Sunglasses, hats, and your skin care) before you go to this place. 2. Avoid the day when holiday is happening. That would save your breath. 3. As this event is more like outing events, always consider the forecast. 4. If you are an international student, choose students price. 5. Last but not least, if you are international students, "Come at least once, so you can say you are in Queensland."
