Queensland Carnival EKKA, this is the largest annual event in Queensland, Australia. I was fortunate to be at the Queensland Carnival on the last day of this year's ekka. In addition to the regular activities, I also had a closing ceremony unexpectedly. As a major festival with a history of more than 100 years, Queensland EKKA Carnival is already one of the most important and most popular festivals in Queensland, and it is the best choice to experience the purest Australian rural life. During the day, you can come here to have an intimate encounter with the animals, feed the cute lambs in the animal nursery, and EKKA’s popular performances "Flying Pig Show", "Sheep Shearing", "Milk Milking" and other childlike performances . And don’t forget to try ekka’s popular strawberry ice cream every year. It’s said that you can only buy it at ekka. The fireworks show at night has turned Brisbane into a city of fairy tales. Accompanied by the rhythm of fireworks and many cultural performances of Australia, it is worth a visit. tips: Holding time: August 9th to August 18th, 2019 (the time may vary every year, you can check the specific time on the official website) Chinese official website: https://www.ekka.com.au/ekka-chinese/ : Brisbane Showgrounds, 600 Gregory Terrace, Bowen Hills QLD 4006.
