Cheaper than the Ekka
In any year in Queensland, there are as many as 128 Agricultural Shows around the state and they are all listed on the Queensland Shows' website.
They are major events in their communities where all sorts of agricultural items are on display and it is a big occasions for the locals and those who follow the show circuit.

Horses, sheep, cattle, pigs, dogs, cats, goats and poultry and much more are on display and there are competitions to determine the best animal in their field, or the best agricultural product. In most there are equestrian events where people of all ages can test their skills at a local level or compete in many shows to improve their skills, and work their way up to the bigger shows like the Royal National Show in Brisbane, commonly known as the "Ekka" which is on from August 7th to 16th.

As well there are a wide range of agricultural displays and competitions you would need to check the websites to see what is happening. Each show has its own character too.
Men and women compete in other areas cooking, handcrafts etc. Woodchopping is popular many shows, especially the Ekka and certainly at Caboolture.

The local shows are where children from non-farming families get to see a variety of animals, and perhaps learn a little where their food comes from.

Sideshows are popular, food stalls, and a wide range of entertainment for all the family. It is a place often where city comes to the country. The details of the shows around the state are at their website.

The Caboolture Show is on from June 5th to 7th, at the showgrounds just north of the Caboolture CBD, around 50 kms north of Brisbane city, with a wide range of activities to entertain. It is described as a "Show and Rodeo" with a great deal of entertainment for those interested in motor sports too.

There's sideshow alley, monster trucks, food stalls galore much to do for all ages. On Friday and Saturday nights the "Monster Trucks" will perform, there will be mini-trotters, chariot racing and fireworks.

Country singer, Dave Reynolds and the Rockabilly Show Band will be performing a number of shows from 11 am on the Saturday, including the high energy Johnny Cash Show. Other entertainment includes magicians, puppeteers and an animal farm.

Admission prices are Adults $10, High school students and Concession $6, Accompanied primary school students free, and unaccompanied primary students $3

It is not far to go for a wonderful day out with the children.
