The Sydney Royal Easter Show is returning to Sydney Olympic Park for 12 massive days full of food, rides and, of course, showbags!
Kicking off this Thursday, the show will run until April 17 and promises to deliver plenty of fun memories for the whole family. Check out this year’s highlights…
Whether you’re after a meal that’s sweet, savoury or straight up indulgent, the Sydney Royal Easter Show is sure to have something for everyone. Alongside its staple food items, the show will also be dishing up plenty of new offerings this year – including the second location in NSW for the always popular Cinnabon!
Make sure to also check out Neon Alley, the biggest ever food truck installation in the history of the show, where you will be able to order super-sized neon foods like dagwood dogs and glow-in-the-dark fairy floss.
For the thrill seekers of the group, it’s hard to go pass the Sydney Royal Easter Show’s many rides. And with rides like the Extreme Speed 2, which is 40m high and spins at speeds that exceed 100kph, The Beast and the XXXL, you’re sure to get your blood pumping.
Those of a younger demographic, or for adults who just want to keep their lunch down, classic rides like the Super Slide or the action-packed aquatic roller coaster Pirates Revenge will be fun for the whole family.
A must-see for animal lovers, the Sydney Royal Easter Show features everything from bunnies and goats to snakes and lizards. A highlight for this year is definitely the Native Animal Display, which allows you to get up close and personal with your favourite Australian bush animals, and the Festival of Dog Sports – which is exactly what it sounds like.
An iconic part of the Sydney Royal Easter Show, it’s almost impossible to go home from the show without at least one showbag. Filled with lollies, toys, games and mementos, head to the Showbag Pavillion for the show’s huge selection of showbags.
Some showbags that are sure to become crowd favourites this year include the Bluey showbag, which is full of merchandise for the popular Australian TV show, the Bubble Tea showbag and the Super Milkybar showbag.
This year, the show isn’t short on entertainment. Check out Bluey and her little sister Bingo during their daily Live Interactive Experiences, watch the spectacular drone show or hold your breath as international Dare Devil Sam Powers is suspended 40 feet in the air buckled inside a regulation straight jacket locked under a flaming set of steel jaws. And after a long day of exploring everything the show has to offer, make sure to stick around for the nightly fireworks display for the perfect end to the day.
