The 2022 Sydney Royal Easter Show arrives this April – here’s everything you need to know

Spend your Easter weekend celebrating everything that makes Australian culture great.

Is it really Easter in Sydney if you’re not spending all day and night at the Sydney Royal Easter Show? And this year promises to be the best ever – it’s the biggest party in the history of the Show – celebrating 200 years of the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW.

Carnival – from games to rides, there’s fun for Showgoers of all ages:

Forget about your paper coupons and the mad scramble to find more – it’s tap and play and tap and ride all day at the Show with the brand-new Carnival Fun Pass card.

Just like your Opal card, load it up with credit and enjoy non-stop fun. From kids activities to the wildest rides, just tap and let the games and thrills begin. That’s not the only new thing in the carnival – you’ll find some brand-new never-experienced-before rides to get you screaming as well.

At the show, the entertainment comes to you:

You don’t have to stop and take a seat for the entertainment at the Sydney Royal Easter Show – it’s roaming around the grounds, and may sneak up and surprise you.

But if you need some time off your feet, make your way to the stands in GIANTS Stadium for an unmissable tribute to our past – with horse-drawn and motorcycle chariots, bullocks, and draught horses, the magnificent hot air balloon and more, before the night sky lights up with cascades of colour.

Eat your way around the Sydney Royal Easter Show:

You’ll need something to eat to keep up with the pace of the Show, and the sweet and savoury food options have you well and truly catered for. There’s always something new to try, and traditional favourites too – you’ll want to try as many flavours as you can manage.

Furry friends are always a Show favourite:

Nothing is easier than following the Animal Walk if you want to pat a pig, shear a sheep, walk an alpaca, or learn how to milk a cow. You can watch all types of livestock and domestic pet judging, play with baby animals, and even learn exactly how to wash a chook.

Don’t go home empty-handed – check out the Showbags:

Did you even come to the Show if you go home without a Showbag or two? From novelties and television shows, to magazines and make-up, magic and sweet treats or footy teams, there’s a showbag for everyone. Best make up your list now, you won’t be able to choose just one.

The Sydney Royal Easter Show is transforming Sydney Showground from Friday 8 April until Tuesday 19 April 2022. Tickets are on sale now via
