The Sydney Royal Easter Show is back. The Show runs from the 10th to the 23rd of April, so there's plenty of time to plan ahead. So what is The Sydney Royal Easter Show? It is Australia's biggest annual event which draws an audience close to 900 000 people each year. It celebrates the rich and warm Australian culture, from rural traditions to modern day lifestyles, and provides unique experiences for all, young and old, men, women, and everyone else in between.
The Sydney Royal Easter Show attracts more than 900,000 people each year.
First held in 1823, the show is run by the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW, a not-for-profit organisation that promotes and rewards agricultural excellence. Through The Sydney Royal Easter Show, the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW is able to continue investing in agricultural programs and supporting rural communities throughout Australia.
Animal rides are but some of the attractions in the Sydney Royal Easter Show this year.
The venue for The Sydney Royal Easter Show is 1 Showground Road, Sydney Olympic Park. It can accommodate the very large crowd expected to visit the Show and is accessible from all modes of land transportation. While private transportation is always an option, it is recommended to use the public transport system as buses and trains regularly shuttle people to and from the venue. It also reduces the carbon footprint.
