For Your Share of Fairy Floss and Furry Animals
For twelve action-packed days from Saturday 20th September, the Royal Melbourne Show will once again be bringing the country to the city at the Melbourne Showgrounds. Amplifying the atmosphere of a rural show, the Royal Melbourne Show is a real institution showcasing the state's best in craft and cookery, thrilling rides, fine food, and live music, complete with a nightly fireworks display.

The show isn't just about celebrating Victoria's amazing agriculture, it's also a community event and an entertainment extravaganza with plenty to please adrenaline-junkies. Dive into daily freestyle motocross showcases, insane woodchopping competitions, horse races, carnival rides, and the wildly entertaining Shetland Steeple.


If break-neck rides and races aren't your scene, perhaps you'll be tempted by the show's legendary selection of local produce, featuring masterclasses and demonstrations from some of Victoria's most renowned chefs. There's food to suit every palate at the show this year with everything from Texas BBQ-style steak to award winning pastries on offer.

For city kids the show is a great chance to get up close and personal with some furry friends: this year the Animal Nursery will be home to over 450 little creatures (including lambs, ducklings and piglets), all waiting for a pat or a cuddle. Plus, you can even milk a cow yourself at the Legendairy Milking Barn!

For your chance to win Family Passes to the Royal Melbourne Show, email your details to with Melbourne Show in the subject line by Wednesday 17th September. We have two bundles of family fun on offer.
