As the city of Brisbane has grown and changed from its colonial roots, so has one of its most enduring icons - the RNA Showgrounds.
Always reflecting the society growing up around it, the RNA Showgrounds has long been an integral element of Queensland life.
From the venue for a World War II field hospital to international sporting events and music festivals, the RNA Showgrounds has moved with the times.
That's the exact vision of a group of colonists had when they met at the Brisbane Town Hall in August 1875, to form the National Agricultural and Industrial Association of Queensland (the RNA).
Their charter was to promote Queensland's agricultural and industrial development, and to provide an opportunity for country and urban residents to celebrate together, through an annual event now synonymous with the Showgrounds...The Royal Queensland Show, or 'Ekka'.
For ten days in August, the RNA Showgrounds is home to Queensland's Ekka, but with 22 versatile venues situated on 22 hectares of Brisbane's best real estate, the Showgrounds is also the perfect venue for your special event...

Located adjacent to the Brisbane CBD, the RNA Showgrounds is bordered by Bowen Bridge Road, O'Connell Terrace, St Paul's Terrace and Gregory Terrace at Bowen Hills. We are situated en-route to the Brisbane Domestic and International Airports, and are in easy reach of the Gold and Sunshine Coasts.
