1936 Aerial Photo of Bowen Hills - Ekka Showgrounds

To remember the Ekka which is usually on this week we are sharing the
1936 Aerial Photos of the Royal Queensland Showgrounds in Bowen Hills.


The Royal Queensland Show, fondly known as "the Ekka", has only been cancelled 4 times in history.
- 1919 due to the Spanish Flu epidemic
- 1942 due to the grounds being used as a World War II staging depot
- 2020 due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
- 2021 due to the Delta strain lockdown.
