Although the 2020 Ekka was cancelled due to COVID-19 planning is now underway for the 2021 show.
Forming part of the Agricultural Hall, the Apiculture Competition supported by Marsh attracts honey, pollen, comb honey, beeswax and mead entries from across the country. The extracted honey liquid is judged across a range of criteria including aroma, colour, flavour, density, clearness and brightness and finish. Adding to the competition, live bee demonstrations take place daily to reveal the wonderful intricacies of their unique environment.
Beekeeping has boomed in urban areas in recent years, with local clubs around Queensland thriving.
Don't miss the amazing sculptures, with entries created from 100% natural coloured beeswax!
