Road Closures

The Royal Queensland Show (Ekka) will be held at the Brisbane Showgrounds from Friday 11th August until Sunday 20th August 2017.

During the event an increased level of noise will be experienced by way of large crowds, amusement rides and amplified noise from the Main Arena within the Showgrounds. The RNA advises that the dates and times of increased noise will be from 8.00am – 10.00pm on Friday 11th – Sunday 20th August 2017.

We assure you that at all times we will endeavour to minimise any inconvenience and adhere to all local and state authority guidelines. The traffic flow in and around the Brisbane Showgrounds will be affected by increased patron and vehicle movements during the above period. We will monitor these movements at all times to ensure there is minimal impact to surrounding streets, local businesses and residents.
