The 2016 IGA Perth Royal Show is at Claremont Showgrounds from Saturday, September 24 to Saturday, October 1 and, while it's always a fun day out, it can also be a fairly expensive adventure, with one of the biggest costs being the entry fee.
The IGA Perth Royal Show is on again
But there are a few ways you can get in to the show for nothing, nada, zilch! Yay, that means you'll have more money for rides and showbags.
Each year, thousands of volunteers help out at the Perth Royal Show. Some are there every day while others give just a few hours of their time.
Volunteer positions range from working on the information booths, to helping with animals and assisting in the educational exhibits. Have a look at the full list of duties and find out how to get involved here.
