Show-Cation Deals with Oaks Hotels & Resorts

14 August 2018

From August through to October, cities all around Australia will come alive with fireworks, festivities, and finger-licking eats for Royal Show season! For families looking to upgrade their show-days into stay-cays, Oaks Hotels & Resorts has an impressive portfolio of two and three-bedroom apartments that are ideal for travelling tribes. Central, affordable, and self-contained apartments all perfectly positioned to get amongst the action!

Attracting up to half a million people to Brisbane each year, The Ekka (officially known as The Royal Queensland Show) is one of Queensland’s largest annual events, and this year it’s set to be as exhilarating as ever! Kicking off from 10 – 19 August, the RNA Showgrounds will be bursting with all the show favorites, including bumper-cars, high-speed stunt displays, thousands of sugar-filled showbags, and the EkkaNITES Fireworks Spectacular, which lights-up at 7:45pm each night.

With 11 hotels around the city, Ekka-goers will be spoiled for choice when selecting an Oaks Brisbane property for a show-cation. Oaks Mews is the ideal launch pad for show-goers who want to be as close to the action as possible (a short 1km walk to the showgrounds). While those who prefer to stay in the heart of the city will enjoy being conveniently close to public transport and a host of local attractions. Oaks Festival Towers’ and Oaks Mews’ Two Bedroom Apartments both start from just *$190 per night.


Known as South Australia’s longest running and most-beloved annual family event, the Royal Adelaide Show always delivers something spectacular for event-enthusiasts. The Foodland Pavilion and ‘Night Shift’ entertainment are expected to be highlights for families of all ages, while the little ones will go nuts for The Smurfs Enchanting Village. The show’s 2018 program runs from 31 August through to 9 September.  

With five South Australian properties located between the city and sea, show-goers will have the choice to stay in Adelaide’s vibrant CBD, or overlooking the bay in Glenelg. Oaks Embassy is a stone’s throw from the Adelaide Showgrounds. The spacious two-bedroom Deluxe Apartments are ideal for families and start from as little as *$175 per night. Meanwhile, beach-lovers who opt for a coastal base can take advantage of Oaks Plaza Pier’s Two Bedroom Ocean View Apartments from *$233 per night (and are just 20 minutes from the showgrounds).


A firm favourite on Melbourne’s event calendar for more than 160 years, the annual Royal Melbourne Show has evolved into one of Victoria’s most highly-anticipated family events. Kicking off on 22 September, the 11-day affair will host an action-packed itinerary, including all-day and night entertainment, food and wine tasting precincts, heart-pumping rides, traditional agriculture attractions, children’s entertainment, and much more!

With all seven of Oaks’ Melbourne properties easily accessible to the CBD’s tramlines, getting to the show has never been easier. With stunning city and park views, Oaks on William Two Bedroom Executive Apartment starts from *$277 per night, while the Cosmo Apartment at Oaks on Collins (comfortably fitting four) starts from just *$149 per night. Both properties are an easy 20-minute tram and train ride to the Melbourne Showgrounds, and conveniently close-by to other iconic family attractions, including Luna Park and Sea Life Aquarium.
