Load up your arms with show bags… it’s Royal Easter Show time!

From crowning the country’s top puppies, alpacas and pigs to overdosing on showbags and whirling through fairground rides – it can be difficult to know where to start with the Royal Easter Show. For two weeks over Easter, Sydney Showground is home to a country fair on an epic scale.

Woodchopping becomes an unprecedented arena sport, sheep shearers are on show and you can see Australia’s best bull riders and BMX bandits in live performances. But there’s also more relaxed recreation to be had at the Arts and Crafts Show, and heaps of critters to meet at the Pet Pavilion. Make the most of the sugar high from deep fried, toffee-injected carnival treats and hit the Crazy Spinning Coaster, the Avenger and the Giant Slide before the nightly fireworks. Feeling nauseous is part of the fun.
