We are ‘udderly’ excited that our Volunteer Program, supported by Adjusta Mattress, has launched for applications interested in getting involved with the 2024 Royal Queensland Show (Ekka).

The Ekka is Queensland's largest and most loved annual event, attracting on average 400,000 people.

Run by the RNA for 9 days in August and staged at its original birthplace, the Brisbane Showgrounds, the Ekka brings the country and city together for a true celebration of agriculture.

Volunteers play a vital role in the success of the show, which will celebrate its 145th show this year.

The Ekka Community Volunteers assist our Ekka teams in engaging our guests in a range of activities across the show each day. From greeting guests at the gate with a warm “G’day!” to helping kids learn how to handle chickens or assisting with behind the scenes entertainment activations.

Sign-ups to volunteer at the year's Ekka NOW! Applications close Friday July 26.
