Fun things for kids


Can you believe that the Castle Hill Show traces back to the 1880s when sports and ploughing contests were held at the site of the former Castle Hill Public School. With historical roots since 1891, the show was held on a site off Showground Rd, where it continues to be enjoyed by locals and people from further afield.

The Castle Hill Show is an exciting and fun country show experience as well as entertaining for kids young and old. I love the fact that even though it has a modern format to the traditional show, it still manages to retain its heritage. Just to excite the kids even more, the Castle Hill Show is the forerunner to the Sydney Royal Easter Show.

Entertainment includes full tilt jousting with knights dressed in armour for the 'Mike the Knight' fans, showjumping, pony club barrel races, vintage cars and utes, a puppet theatre, performances by country music singer Lynda Barnes and the Davin Griffiths-Jones School of Performing Arts, and not to forget the fireworks display at the main arena.

If your kids are into animals, don't you worry there are sections for alpaca, apiculture (beekeeping), cattle, donkeys, goats, horticulture, pigeons, poultry, rabbits, sheep, and woodchopping. There is also art, craft, paper, fibre and photography sections, a homebrew section and a school exhibit.

It is truly an amazing day out with the family without the queues or the vast walking distance between venues compared to the Sydney Royal Easter Show, perfect for my under 5 kidlets.
