Library opening hours for the Ekka show holiday

It’s that time of year again – Ekka time!

Chilly, windy days; carnies flocking to town; and people doing their best to avoid a winter cold.

Starting next Monday, the round of Show holidays begins!

It’s time to brave the crowds, stock up on show bags, enjoy some rides, chow down some carnival food, and revel in the the fireworks. Or skip the Ekka all together and just enjoy a nice day off. Either or.

Monday 14 August is a public holiday for Logan campus. Wednesday 16 August is then a public holiday for all Brisbane campuses (we’re looking at you – Nathan, Mt Gravatt, and South Bank). And, all good things come to those who wait. So while it is a bit of a longer wait (soz), Friday 1 September it’s finally your turn Gold Coast!

Library opening hours have changed for the Show Holidays so be sure to check the library opening hours for your campus library.

Roll up. Roll up. The Ekka is in town!

Logan peeps; today’s your day to eat fairy floss, scare yourself silly on rides, and spend big on show bags. It’s your official Show Holiday, so you can spend the whole day at the woodchopping if you want to.

Brisbane, you have to wait until Wednesday for your official Ekka public holiday. And Gold Coast, you annual Show Day isn’t until the end of the month.
