STRAWBERRY SUNDAES Is it any wonder that 130,000+ iconic Strawberry Sundaes are consumed during Queensland’s most loved event every year?! The Ekka Strawberry Sundaes are irresistible. Inside the cone sits five layers – smooth vanilla ice cream, fresh Queensland strawberries, a large scoop of strawberry ice cream, and swirls of fresh cream topped off with a whole ripe strawberry! The sundaes raise pivotal funds for The Common Good to aid life-changing medical research and are served to you with the help of generous volunteers. Find these strawberry sweet treats at several locations around grounds. DAGWOOD DOGS You know it’s show time when you see golden Dagwood Dogs dipped in tomato sauce at vendors across the grounds. For an authentic Ekka experience, you must take the time to chow down on this show favourite, preferably while sitting back and watching entertainment on the Main Area. Iconic!! QUEENSLAND COUNTRY WOMEN’S ASSOCIATION EATS & TREATS CAFE A true Ekka experience, enjoy a CWA scone for morning tea, served with fresh jam and whipped cream.
