QUEENSLAND'S largest annual event is back for its 142nd year with more strawberry sundaes than you can poke a cattle prod at.

Held over 10 full days, the Ekka showcases agricultural life and achievements in the sunshine state.

Watch the dog show, see huge cows, view the woodchop, have a beer with the farmers, eat a steak, get your thrills at Sideshow Alley and of course, eat one too many strawberry sundaes.

The Ekka is held at the Brisbane Showgrounds from August 10-19.
