Not everything at the show costs a fortune
We all know you can spend a LOT of cash at the IGA Perth Royal Show. But showbags and rides asides, there's actually a lot of free entertainment for kids and their parents.

Here are 10 of the best free things you can see or do at this year's show:

The animals
It's what the show was originally all about and there are so many animals to see at the show. Check out the cows and watch them being milked in the Dairy Pavilion, see the horses in the main arena and get up close and have a cuddly with lots of fluffy friends at the Creatures Great and Small Pavilion and the City Farmers Animal Nursery.
