The Ekka. It’s big, it’s beautiful, and it is filled with people from all over Queensland and further afield.

Each one has their own story, their own tale to tell. It’s in the creases of their face or the excitement in their eyes.

Forget the prize-winning cattle for a minute. Forget the trophy winners with all their ribbons.

These are the real champions.
