Step right up – with Uber and the Ekka

July 31, 2017 / Brisbane

Leave your car at home and roll up, roll up, roll up to the carnival with Uber!

This year, we’ve teamed up with the Ekka to bring the Uber experience to Queensland’s largest and most beloved annual show.

Now in it’s 140th year, the Ekka returns to the Brisbane Showgrounds from 11th to 20th August. Enjoy 10 amazing days of amusement rides, sideshow alley games, live music, exhibitions, fireworks, and plenty more.


From four wheels to ferris wheels

Save up to 50% on entry tickets when you visit the Ekka after 6pm with the new $16 Twilight Ticket available via the link below.

Need a break from clowning around?

Sit back and relax at the UberLOUNGE at the King Street precinct, where you can request a ride, charge your phone, and enjoy a free bottle of water. The Uber team will be on hand to assist with any questions you may have about the app.


Slide out of the Ekka

We’ve made it even easier to find your ride with a dedicated UberZONE at Machinery Street (near Gate 2). If you’re not near this area, simply follow the in-app prompts to locate your closest Uber pick-up zone.
