Although the 2020 Ekka was cancelled due to COVID-19 planning is now underway for the 2021 show.
Horticulture has played an important role in the Royal Queensland Show since it first began in 1876.
The eye-catching stands are one of the key attractions of Horticultural Displays Competition at the Old Museum, with community groups, clubs and associations all competing to win the Mabel Burnett Award for the Most Effective Display.
Features of excellent displays typically include healthy plants, unusual plants or unusually good specimens of common species and a wide array of examples in specialist group displays.
Venture up to the Old Museum during the ten days of show and see if you can spot a display from your local community.
