Get out & about at the Easter Show
Every few years or so I catch the bus with Leanne and go to the Sydney Royal Easter Show. Here we will spend most of the day wandering around looking at attractions that interest us and last year was the first time in a while that I had gone and for me it was as a senior on Senior's Day. We are going to give it a miss this year and maybe wait a few years and take the grandsons out for a day.
Last year I set myself a task to try and see the following attractions:
1. Sydney Royal Wood chopping & Sawing Competition.
9. Australian Whip Cracking Championships and World Bullock Whip Championship.
10. Flower and Garden competition.
11. Show bag pavilion to get that liquorice bag we missed out on last year.
There are almost 200 different attractions listed at the 2016 Royal Easter Show and there is definitely something for everyone.
To save yourself a lot of time, why don't you make your own list for this year's Sydney Royal Easter Show. All you need to do is click here to go through the list and pick out what you would like to do. Just make sure that you check out the times as a few of them may clash.
To help you out the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW (RAS) has a "Getting Here page" that will give you the opening and closing times, types of transport and there is even a Royal Easter Show App that you can download.
This year you can once again save yourself money by going to the Tickets & Deals page where you can work out what will best suits you and the best value ShowLink tickets, Carnival Coupons, Meal Deals and save, save, save!
The Sydney Royal Easter show starts on the 17th of March and will run through to the 30th of March, giving you 14 days to choose when you would like to go. Maybe you will have so much that you want to see that you will have to go twice.
