Syd­ney Royal Easter Show

Time Out (Sydney) - - THINGS TO DO -

Hold baby chicks, ride on teacups, and load up your arms with show bags

The Royal Easter Show brings coun­try life to the city: show­ing off the brawn of the wood­chop­pers, steady hands of the sheep shear­ers and the core strength of Aus­tralia’s best bull rid­ers. For kids, it’s all about the show bags: how many can you get your par­ents to buy for you? For teens, the fair­ground is the main at­trac­tion with thriller roller coast­ers. There are daily fire­works dis­plays and an in­ter­na­tional mar­ket­place to ex­plore. A new evening pro­duc­tion of the beloved Banjo Patterson poem ‘The Man from Snowy River’ fea­tures 100 an­i­mals gal­lop­ing around the Spot­less Sta­dium. And there’s a Cheese Toastie Fac­tory churn­ing out tasty toasties all day, ev­ery day for $2 a pop. EJ
