Ekka Media Kit 2023

The Cross River Rail (CRR) project is transforming Exhibition Station into a new, fully accessible station, that will provide year-round services to Bowen Hills, Herston Quarter and the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital (RBWH). Now in its fourth year of construction, once complete, the new station will provide major benefits for our Brisbane Showgrounds precinct which hosts more than 300 events a year, including the Ekka, and attracts a million visitors annually. The upgraded station will feature a new 165m long island platform and canopy, accessibility lifts and stairs to the platform, new accessible toilets and a parents’ room. Exhibition Station is scheduled to open for daily use from 2025 and is planned to be operational for Ekka 2024.
