August 2020 in Brisbane & Queensland

August is normally Ekka time in Brisbane! That often means cold winds from the west. In 2020, the Ekka has been cancelled due to COVID-19.
The Brisbane wattle (acacia fimbriata) is in flower. It's also whale-watching season in Queensland and Children's Book Week.

  • The 2020 EKKA public holiday in Brisbane has been resheduled to Friday 14th August to make a long weekend. (ABC story) Surrounding areas will still have the show holiday on Monday 10th August.
