RACQ Animal Nursery
The much loved RACQ Animal Nursery is home to around 400 baby farmyard animals for families to meet, greet and cuddle, including lambs, calves, ducklings and goats. The popular Pat-A-Pig display, where visitors can get up close for a cuddle and a photo with some charming piglets, will also be back this year. Ekka guests also have the opportunity to hold a baby chick, who will fit right into the palm of your hand!
SHEEP SHEARING DEMONSTRATIONS
A crowd favourite within the Animal Boulevard, the Sheep Shearing demonstrations embrace both old and new traditions, highlighting the different techniques adapted throughout the years. Come and see what old-style sheep shearing looks like with seasoned professionals displaying hand shearing along with new, easier techniques including electric shears. The Sheep Shearing demonstrations will be a daily event where visitors can immerse themselves within the shearing shed environment and feel the freshly shorn wool!
