2024 Menu

Our sustainably focused menu showcases our unique connection to Australian farmers.

For 147 years, the RNA has celebrated and championed agriculture through its Royal Queensland Show (Ekka) and its Royal Queensland Awards (RQA) food and beverage competitions. In fact, our Royal ICC is the only convention centre in Australia where guests can enjoy produce awarded gold, silver and bronze medals in the RQA.

Through this connection, our world-class chefs have formed close relationships with the competition entrants - Australia’s finest farmers and producers - learning the story behind each high-quality ingredient used.

The Royal ICC’s 2024 menu has embraced the live station format, connecting chefs with event guests through an interactive catering experience.

With so much award-winning produce grown right here in southeast Queensland, we have a strong focus on sourcing local food and beverages. We know every function is unique, so our chefs can also tailor menus to suit any event need or dietary requirement.
