Show Time: A fun time for all
We're so glad to welcome back the Royal Melbourne Show, the iconic spring event coinciding with beautiful weather, school holidays and that certain buzz in the air that simply says 'life is grand'.

And the comeback 'show', after a two-year Covid-induced break, is just that. It's massive but rather than try to do everything, which is literally impossible, here are a few of my top suggestions:

First and foremost (and while rides and showbags scream for attention), 'the show' as I fondly know her is first and foremost an agricultural show. Enjoy the sheep, cattle, horses, alpaca, dogs and chooks, and other furry or feathered friends in the Sushi Hub Farmyard and Animal Nursery.

Marvel at the art, craft and cookery in the Spotlight Makers Pavilion, a literal wonderland of creativity and ingenuity, celebrating anything from cakes and cookies to paintings, woodwork, macrame and crochet.

And, on the subject of all things beautiful, the tasty offerings seem better than ever this year, with food experiences ranging from Graze, Melbourne Laneway and the MasterChef Courtyard to the traditional CWA Kitchen for some Devonshire Tea dished up by the ladies who know.

Save yourself some $ and catch some great entertainment, with The Show After Dark not only just $25 (after 5pm), but including a stellar line-up of artists headlined by The Veronicas. It's really great value, and with the warmer weather upon us, an opportunity to enjoy a night under the stars.

Cosentino Magic

Entertainment for all ages abounds day and night, so be sure to scour the website before you go, and make the most of what promises to be a thrill, nature and magic-filled day or night.
