Central Highlands goes to Ekka

A Central Highlands flavour has been added to this year’s Ekka with the inaugural Farm to Fine Dining Regional Produce Dinner.

The event, hosted by CHDC, featured a Central Highlands-inspired menu and promoted local agricultural produce to 60 key, invited guests.

The evening was held at the new and acclaimed Six Acres Restaurant, chosen because it’s located in the Brisbane Showgrounds Ekka precinct.

The purpose was to give key decision-makers a new awareness and appreciation of the region’s local produce to help shape and influence their strategic operations in the future.


Produce in this year’s menu included:

  • Citrus from 2PH Farms
  • Popping corn from Robert and Danni Ingram’s Avondale property
  • Ancient grain from Southern Cross Agricultural Exports
  • Emerging business Top End Plantation supplied local sunflower honey
  • Macadamias from Hinkler Park Plantation, who recently added the Central Highlands to its portfolio of orchards in Australia, and South Africa.
  • Atlantic potatoes from Cunzolo Farms
  • Comiskey Bazadais Beef from Capella formed a key component of the entrée, and had only just won the champion carcase in the 70-day class at Ekka
