4 August 2016 –
People with disability, seniors who hold a Queensland Government Companion Card, and people with a Seniors Card are able to access discounted entry at this year’s Ekka.
Seniors Card and other concession card holders receive the discounted entry rate of $24.
The Queensland Government’s Companion Card also makes it easier for people with disability to get to the Ekka by allowing them to bring a companion free of charge.
All gates into the Ekka are wheelchair accessible, and the official drop-off point is Gate 1 on Gregory Terrace. There are also two dedicated recharge stations for electric wheelchairs, located in the Fresh Food Pavilion.
