The Royal Queensland Show, known as Ekka, is a major celebration of agriculture, featuring animal displays and agricultural innovations.

However, it’s not just about farming; Ekka is a celebration of recreation and entertainment with fascinating shows, concerts, and fireworks. Food lovers come to the event to enjoy delicious treats, and many families love the kid-friendly atmosphere with various displays and rides.

This grand celebration attracts a massive crowd of about 400,000 people every year, creating high demand for accommodation arrangements and raising hotel room prices. To secure a room at a reasonable price, it’s recommended to check prices and book ahead of time.

Ekka is a cultural celebration for all ages and the whole family, uniting urban and rural communities. It also hosts various competitions, adding to the excitement. In short, the combination of agricultural displays, entertainment, food, family fun, cultural activities, and various competitions makes the Royal Queensland Show a must-see annual Queensland event.

Australia background and overview
Aboriginal settlers arrived on the continent from Southeast Asia about 40,000 years before the first Europeans began exploration in the 17th century. No formal territorial claims were made until 1770, when Capt.
James COOK took possession in the name of Great Britain. Six colonies were created in the late 18th and 19th centuries; they federated and became the Commonwealth of Australia in 1901. The new country took advantage of its natural resources to rapidly develop agricultural and manufacturing industries and to make a major contribution to the British effort in World Wars I and II. In recent decades, Australia has transformed itself into an internationally competitive, advanced market economy.
It boasted one of the OECD's fastest growing economies during the 1990s, a performance due in large part to economic reforms adopted in the 1980s. Long-term concerns include pollution, particularly depletion of the ozone layer, and management and conservation of coastal areas, especially the Great Barrier Reef.
