The Sydney Royal Easter Show is back and in 2024, the Easter Show runs from Friday 22 March 2024 through to Tuesday 02 April 2024.

Even if you've been before, there are new events, attractions and foodie experiences each year plus old favourites to fill a day (or more). Whilst there are lots of activities aimed at children, the show is not just for kids.

Highlights for adults include:
  • Woodchopping in the Woodchop stadium on Riverina Ave
  • Food truck alley (in between the Arts and Crafts pavilion and woodchopping stadium)
  • Giant pumpkins in the Flower and Garden pavilion
  • Craft stands in the Arts and Crafts pavilion where you can learn a new hobby such as leatherwork or flower arranging
  • Buy a new piece of artwork from the Arts and Crafts pavilion
  • Gourmet food tasting in the Woolworth's pavilion
  • Finding random gadgets or accessories in the Fashion and Style pavilion or World Bazaar
  • Eating a cheese on a stick with a fresh lemonade
  • Many showbags are aimed at adults with gym gear, stylish accessories, makeup and fashionable clothing
  • Motocross stunt show in the main stadium
  • Learn the history of the show in the Heritage Pavilion

  • I've convinced several friends and relatives who live overseas to visit Australia during Easter, so they can go to the Easter Show, and they all loved it.

    The Sydney Easter Show was the highlight of my visit in Sydney.

    If you're concerned about the cost, there's plenty of freebies and cheap eats. The Woolworth's pavilion offers cheap cheese toasties, hot cross buns and pies amongst numerous free tastings.

    Down the back of the Showgrounds, (along New England Ave) is a barbecue where you can get a Sausage sandwich with sauce and (optional onions) plus a bottle of water for $5 (2023 prices) which is the bargain of the show.

    There's also water filling stations usually located along Hawkesbury St, New England Ave and outside the Flower & Garden Pavilion.

    If your legs are tired and your back aches, from carrying so many showbags, head to the Home and Lifestyle pavilion where you'll find massage chairs. They're for sale but the stores offer free trials.

    The Bertie Beatle Showbag is still one of the cheapest available but Cadbury and Mars offer mix-and-match showbag combos which offer great value and give you a variety of chocolates. The Australian Women's Weekly Showbag is generally the best value overall with lots of samples. The Stella Athletic bag always sells out, so if that's on your list, buy it at the start of the day. Men's Health and Women's Health usually have stylish accessories including a tote bag, belt and hat amongst other healthy samples.

    Top tips for an enjoyable show
  • Arrive early and plan the shows and events you wish to see
  • Grab a map on the way in (or from an information stand) as it has all the show times
  • Anticipate the busy times of pavilions e.g. Woolworths is always busy at lunchtime from 11:30am - 1:30pm and the show bags are busy at multiple times throughout the day but the arts and crafts is almost empty around 4pm
  • I prefer to buy show bags at the end of the day but there's lockers outside of the Woolworths pavilion if you don't want to miss out on a bag
  • Fitting everything into a single day is long and tiring, buy a multi-day pass or purchase a Royal Agricultural Society Membership which allows entry during any day of the show plus other benefits
  • Note that some events and award ceremonies are on specific days only e.g. succulents are on a different day to carnivorous plants
  • There's a quiet park on the corner of New England Ave and Hawkesbury St if you need an escape with water filling stations nearby
  • Sign up to the Extreme Rider Vouchers here (closer to the show date) and you'll receive coupons you can print off at home

  • If you want to save on entry, plan on buying tickets ahead of the show for a specific day, and online. Tickets go on sale in February and the early bird period ends 21 March 2024 (unless sold out earlier).

    Ticket prices range as follows:
    Family Ticket - 2 Adults + 2 Children from: $110.00 - $190.00
    Adult from: $43.00 - $60.00
    Child from: $26.00 - $43.00
    Concession: $32.00 - $49.00
    Person With a Disability: $26.00 - $43.00

    The cheaper price is based on buying your tickets online, in advance, before the show opens. The more expensive cost includes a reserved seat in the stadium.

    Kids Day - $16 kids tickets and 2 for 1 rides
    If you plan on taking lots of children, then visit on the last day of the show 02 April 2024 as kids' tickets are only $16 on Kids' Day! Plus, they can enjoy '2 for 1' Carnival rides. Some showbags are discounted towards the end of the show, whilst others are sold out, so it's a bit of a lucky dip.
