It’s August and anyone that has lived in Brisbane knows that means 2 things:-
The Ekka is in town and
This year is a little different with the Ekka having to be cancelled, but there is good news as the Ekka is now online.
At a great new website Ekkaonline.com is where you can have some of the Ekka experience from the safety of your home.
You can see the fireworks, the blue ribbon baking, freestyle motocross, the baby animals, spend time with a farmer, show jumping, the dogs, cats and chickens and more. It is unbelievable how much they have crammed in here.
You can register on the site and receive reminders of the events that are happening over the 2 weeks of the Show.
There are also some stallholders that are open at different locations. We would suggest that you visit the marketplace where you can see all of the wonderful Queensland producers and find ways to support them.
Of course there are also ways to find the crowd favourite the Strawberry Sundae.
If you are looking for a Strawberry Sundae then here is the list of pop-up locations around town.
