A Day at the Ekka - never the same again

Someone commented to me on Friday that the Ekka (or Brisbane Exhibition to the uninitiated) is rather dated. Yes, it probably is and it is expensive but we still loved our morning there on Thursday. The boys scored some fluffy toys on the sideshow alley games, we rode the dodgem cars as a family. I had the comand yelled at me as I drove around with Dan "Put your arm around the little fella Mum - you can drive with one hand!!!!" We rode the chairlift for the last time as it is being dismantled for a large redevelopment that is being done on the site. I'm rather proud of the photo I took of Anthony and Dan riding behind us as I simply held the camera up behind my head and clicked!We also had a brief foray into the old Industrial Pavilion which is also being torn down. I don't know if we'll go next year especially given the prices but it was good to see all the old favourites for one last time and the boys think it is one of the best places in the world.


  1. You know, I've never been to the Ekka and don't expect I will due to these things being overpriced. It's a shame because these types of shows when we were younger were so much fun weren't they!
