If you're looking for something fun to do in November, I would suggest the Dandenong Show for many reasons.
When I googled the admission prices, I was shocked. It was so much more cheaper than the Royal Melbourne Show. It's only $15 for adults, $10 for pensioners and students and kids aged 10 to 14 are $5. The parking fee is only $5 - at the Melbourne Show it's $20.
They have all the same things as the show, such as rides for the little ones and big scary attractions for the older kids. There si also animals and pony rides and animal shows for everyone to enjoy.
They are also going to be selling showbags, so you can still get your Wonka, Simpsons, Smiths Chips and Coke showbags.
There is lots to see this year at the Dandenong Show, such as arts and craft exhibitions, cars, wood-chopping shows, food exhibitions and more. I have been to the Dandenong Show a few times in the past and have always enjoyed it more than the Royal Melbourne Show. It's more relaxed, less expensive and not as many people.
Lots of music, goodies and fun times on the Saturday the 9th and Sunday the 10th of November for anyone who is interested in going.
