Sydney Royal Easter Show

Home > Sydney > Shows | Fun for Children | Food and Wine
Roll up, roll up, because from the 1st to the 14th of April, the Royal Easter Show will be delighting around 900,000 guests at the Sydney Showground.

The history of this famous event dates all the way back to 1823, when the first edition was held at Parramatta. And it has been running annually ever since 1869, notwithstanding the occasional outbreak of Spanish flu (1919) and world war (1942-6).

As always, the program will be packed with fun things for the whole family. The entertainment will feature big-ticket items like the action-packed Main Arena and the nightly Laser & Fireworks Finale, as well as less obvious highlights such as the Psycho Sideshow and Noddy, the world's tallest horse.

No Easter Show would be complete without an assortment of enticing animals and competitions. The former will include the Farmyard Nursery and Alpaca Fashion Parades, while the latter will include the Flower & Garden Show and the Domestic Animals showcase.

Typically, there will also be numerous exhibits to enjoy, such as the regional produce of District Exhibits, the old school cool of Heritage Lane, the technological wizardry of The Zone and the creative brilliance of the Arts Pavilion.

For the kids – and big kids – there will be more rides and showbags than ever.

If you feel like grabbing something to eat, there will be a plethora of food options. But be warned: none of them will come cheap.

The same goes for tickets. ShowLink tickets, which include public transport and admission, cost $33 for adults, $26 for concession, $22 for the disabled (plus one carer admitted free), $22 for 4-15 year olds and nothing for under-3s. Rides cost extra.
