Rural Queensland Show Rural Discovery Day

This year's Ekka Rural Discovery Day took place on Thursday 18 May 2017

9:30am - 2:00pm

Brisbane Showgrounds, Bowen Hills

The Royal Queensland Show (RQS) Rural Discovery Day sees primary students celebrate and experience first-hand the best that Queensland's primary industries have to offer. 

Rural Discovery Day is a unique hands-on learning experience, students taste fresh fruit and produce, milk cows and pot seeds all while discovering how their foods get from paddock to plate through the help of real life farmers.

Held at the Brisbane Showgrounds since 2003, RQS Rural Discovery Day has proven to be an outstanding educational and entertaining event, giving city students a well-rounded country education in one location.

RNA Chief Executive Brendan Christou describes the RQS Rural Discovery Day as an example of the RNA's commitment and support to promoting Queensland's primary industries and the importance for children to develop an understanding of where food and fibre comes from.
