The Brisbane Showgrounds comprises of a unique range of venues and outdoor green spaces. Events are staged throughout the year, extending from music festivals to trade shows, sporting and cultural events to intimate private functions.

Located adjacent to the Brisbane CBD, Brisbane Showgrounds is bordered by Bowen Bridge Road, O'Connell Terrace, St Paul's Terrace and Gregory Terrace at Bowen Hills. We are situated en-route to the Brisbane Domestic and International Airports, and are in easy reach of the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast.

The rich history of this iconic and revered site is etched into Queensland's social heritage. Every generation from the very first Ekka in 1876 to today has warm memories of attending an event here or witnessing history. From watching American aviator Arthur Burr Stone land on the Main Arena during the first flight ever over Brisbane to the Showgrounds being used as a World War II field hospital. Who can forget the world's greatest batsman Sir Donald Bradman making his test debut or those who saw a little know band called Powderfinger perform at the iconic Livid Festival in 1997.The Brisbane Showgrounds continues to evolve and innovate to ensure the next generation can experience and capture lifelong warm memories.

The Brisbane Showgrounds is fast becoming known as one of the nation's pre-eminent live music destinations offering facilities which easily cater for concerts of all tastes and sizes.
