at the Royal

We loved meet­ing many of you at the Coun­try Style show bag stand.

IT’S THE TIME OF year when the coun­try comes to town. There’s a sud­den in­crease in the num­ber of Akubras and R.M. Wil­liams boots that you can spot in the CBD — all sig­nals that the Syd­ney Royal Easter Show is on again. Dur­ing the 14 days of the show, wool val­ued at more than $11 mil­lion was sold in the two-day on-site auction; 1700 head of cat­tle stayed on the show­ground; and the Dis­trict Ex­hibits Per­pet­ual Shield was won by the South East Queens­land dis­play. The Coun­try Women’s As­so­ci­a­tion sold a record-break­ing 51,000 scones from their fa­mous tea­room near the Coun­try Style show bag stand (and, yes, we did eat a few of them!). Next year’s show will be held from Fri­day, March 23rd un­til Tues­day, April 3rd.
