The Royal Queensland Show is a celebration of farming and traditional Australian cultural activities. Organized by the Royal National Agricultural Association (RNA), the show is taking place at the RNA Showgrounds until August 20, so take a car hire in Australia
and learn about the country's agricultural heritage.
Known by locals as Ekka - which is slang for exhibition - the show was first held in 1921, according to the event's official website. The show routinely attracts more than half a million visitors every year. The festival offers visitors the opportunity to see livestock judging contests for cattle, sheep, lambs and goats, a display of thoroughbred horses and showjumping, and sheepdog trials.
In addition to traditional agricultural competitions, there are several smaller contests for creative hobbyists in cooking, cake decoration, photography, sculpture and painting. The event also features a greyhound race and a wine tasting tent, in addition to a wood chopping and sawing challenge.
The RNA showground is a short drive from the city's inner city bypass motorway, and can be reached by highway 10. A car hire in Brisbane
could offer visitors to the show an easy way to reach the showgrounds.
