The Brisbane Showgrounds has been cemented in our hearts since 1875 as one of Queensland’s favourite gathering places and agricultural epicenters – home to the EKKA and many other exciting events!
Only 1.6kms from Brisbane’s CBD, the $2.9 billion Brisbane Showgrounds redevelopment, including King Street, is a partnership between the RNA and Lendlease. They’re both dedicated to creating an authentic, localised destination, reflective of its legacy, regional significance (to Queensland) and which contributes to Brisbane’s position as a modern world city by 2025.
Whether you’re heading home, to work or for a day out, King Street breathes new life into the iconic Brisbane precinct.
Preserving the spirit of our rich heritage while embracing new life and energy, Brisbane Showgrounds will continue to evolve with Brisbane to the next generation.
King Street invites you to rediscover the best of Brisbane life all over again.
For years Brisbane Showgrounds has celebrated the arts and entertainment industry. King Street is set to continue this legacy showcasing the next generation of performers and entertainers to the locals.
King Street is an edgy and carefully curated lifestyle and dining destination where Brisbane comes to life.

We believe in creating the best places. Places that meet people’s needs for the future, a future for people and communities to prosper. Places where people live, learn, work, play, heal, travel and above all, connect. At Lendlease we believe the Brisbane Showgrounds project is more than the bricks and mortar of the Showgrounds. They are the community, events and brands Queenslanders know and the character and heritage Queenslanders have held dear since 1876.
For the urban renewal of the Brisbane Showgrounds, boundaries between past and future have been blurred with a focus on restoring and repurposing materials that have been embedded in and have been synonymous with the Showgrounds since its inception. We focus on building a sense of place and weaving sustainability into everything that we do.
