An Australian themed arena featuring agricultural excellence, upon entering the showgrounds there are hours of free entertainment around the showgrounds and spanking new stadium. Roaming around with real cowboys & cowgirls and fair-dinkum Aussie farmers always builds up an appetite so stalls are set up with traditional show food and award-wining gourmet produce from rural areas country-wide.
For the first year, a Food and Wine Garden will be set up featuring Café NSW serving top drops to complement cuisine from the Fresh Food Dome. Food finding has never been so much fun at the Sydney Royal Easter Show. There's gourmet alfresco dining, gluten-free goodies, grab-it-n-run-grub, and treats galore to tantalize your taste buds. From stylish garden settlings, to wine tasting rows, a great feast awaits you and your family.
"Of course no trip to the show is complete without family favourites; woodchop, grand parades and the many animal pavilions. Get hands on with sheep shearing, cow milking and the Dairy Farmers Farmyard Nursery. Test your bravery on one of the 59 thrilling rides in Australia’s largest carnival and take your pick from more than 300 Showbags,” remarks Michael Collins, the Show’s General Manager.
Rodeos, stockmen rides, motocross, and pyrotechnic musicals are all part of the family fun but nothing exudes excitement like the promise of a perfect showbag purchase. This year there are a record number of showbags; with so many to choose from, every personality and budget will meet their match.
"One of my favourite childhood memories is walking into the Showbag Pavilion for the first time,” recalls Mr. Collins with a gleam in his eye.
Showbags have a come a long way to include television themes like Dora the Exporer, Toy Story 3, Glee amongst the modern range, trumping Minties and Sunny Boy varieties of late. When it comes to showbags and show planning, all the information you need is on the Sydney Royal Easter Show website.
