RACQ Animal Nursery

RACQ Animal Nursery

Feed farm animals

Home to cute and cuddly baby animals, the RACQ Animal Nursery is a family favourite. One of the Ekka’s most popular attractions, this year it will feature some exciting new animals.

The kids (and the big kids) will be all smiles as they get up close to hundreds of their favourite farmyard animals on their adventure through the nursery.

Fed, pat and snap selfies with a range of loveable animals including calves, goats, lambs, ducklings, chickens, working dog puppies, alpacas, llamas, donkeys, a pony and more. New this year are two adorable highland cattle with long shaggy coats, along with the only two Valais sheep in Queensland.  This year, camels will also make their return to the much-loved nursery. Camels haven’t featured at the Ekka since 2017.

Proceeds from the feed cups will go to RACQ Foundation, supporting Queensland communities impacted by natural disaster.

Those who visit the RACQ Animal Nursery will not only make new farmyard friends, they'll make memories that will last a lifetime.
