Royal Queensland Show—Brisbane Ekka
The Queensland Government was on show at this year’s Ekka from 7 to 16 August.
Ekka visitors were able to interact with the Queensland Government exhibits, engage with departments and see first-hand how the public service is making access to government services simpler through the One-Stop Shop initiative.
Visitors had the opportunity to find out more about key Queensland Government services now available online, on the QGov app or through regional customer centres.
Other highlights included a special visit from race car driver Jamie Whincup at the Department of Energy and Water Supply display, art activities and a Monster Match game with the Department of Education and Training, and delicious, fresh produce at the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries kiosk.
Visits from Blazer Bear at the Queensland Fire and Emergency Services stand had Ekka visitors grabbing their cameras for a photo opportunity and Seqwater provided thirsty patrons with free water from four refill stations.
The Department of Housing and Public Works welcomed visitors with a pool fencing safety display and the Department of Transport and Main Roads gave visitors the opportunity to see themselves as a safety conscious motorcycle rider, boatie, cyclist or motorist.
