Advance Queensland on show at the 2017 Ekka

The Queensland Government’s Advance Queensland precinct at the Ekka was a huge success with over 52,000 attendees engaging with staff and participating in activities.

The precinct showcased Queensland technology, innovation and government initiatives through 23 interactive and informative displays across 12 departments and external agencies.

There was plenty for visitors of all ages to experience, including:

  • cutting-edge, Queensland drone technology and the footage they’ve captured
  • a 3D sneak peek at the new Townsville stadium with virtual reality goggles
  • a quad bike, a police motorbike, the latest in automated vehicle technology, and the chance to check if your car is E10 OK
  • the chance to meet Mark Winterbottom and some of our incredible Queensland Academy of Sport athletes
  • a live Fire Ant display and game centre
  • loads of Lego building stations
  • a One Million Stars crafting table
  • a giant colouring wall, a Polaroid wall and a ‘future career’ photo booth
  • a Future Fruit Simulator on 3D touch screens
  • a Junior Detective notebook activity and the chance to win some fantastic prizes.

A big thank you and congratulations to all staff and departments involved for another fantastic whole-of-government effort.
