All the usual fun activities are going ahead as normal this year at the Easter Show. There will be farm animals to feed, pigs to pat, ponies to ride and dog shows to watch. (Hot tip from the team: you’ll want to wear enclosed shoes.)

Kids (and adults) will have rides to enjoy, ranging from the intense thrill level of The Beast to the more mild Super Slide and Double Decker Carousel.

The Sydney Royal Easter Show pavilions are also back in action. The Woolworths Fresh Food Dome has heaps of delicious interactive booths and the Heritage Display gives visitors a taste of rural history.

New this year is the Royal Egg Hunt which will see families enter a maze setting to recover squishy eggs that can be traded for sweets upon exiting the maze. The Egg Hunt will be set up on the corner of Grand Parade and Olympic Boulevard.

Food-wise, there’s plenty on offer with the usual fairy floss and food truck array. Neon Alley is returning with its largest-ever food truck installation at the Royal Easter Show. The highlight this year is a selection of neon-coated foods including gelato, dagwood dogs, cronuts and churro, plus the neon gummi bear loaded fries (what!).

And don’t forget the Grand Parade and nightly Fireworks display. You can explore the website for more experiences to check out.

Get to the good stuff – what about show bags?

As always, the Showbag Pavilion will be back at the Sydney Easter Show in 2024.
