Queensland’s agricultural shows are set to receive a $2-million funding boost following the success of The Ekka.

$150,000 will be allocated to The Ekka, with the other 128 show societies across Queensland sharing the remainder.

Deputy Premier Steven Miles also responded to ambulance wait times, after one man had to call triple-zero three times after suffering a heart attack, and another had to wait five hours following a bowel obstruction, saying the service ‘works incredibly hard’.
