The 2021 Sydney Royal Easter Show is here!

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

The countdown is finally over! For the next two weeks, the Sydney Royal Easter Show is celebrating the best of Australia’s cultural heritage – from rural tradition to modern-day lifestyles, there is so much to see, do, and explore.

What’s new for 2021?

This year, the Sydney Royal Easter Show is still bringing you all the animals, activities, carnival rides, and memory making experience you’ve come to know and love, with the Show operating a little bit differently in 2021.

To manage crowd numbers and ensure the safety of the whole Sydney Royal Easter Show community, for this year you will have to purchase tickets to a specific show day. This allows event organisers to understand in advance how many people will be on site, and will help keep the Show COVID-Safe.

To meet contact tracing requirements for the NSW Government, tickets for the 2021 Show also won’t include free public transportation.

After an incredibly tough year, we’re excited to put on a safe event that showcases everything we love about the Show: agricultural excellence, food and family fun…The Show will be a great celebration for Sydney and all of NSW and a chance for us to come together as a community.

Murray Wilton, General Manager of Agriculture and the Show

What’s on?

If you’re anything like us you’re probably heading straight to the animals, and lucky for you the Sydney Royal Easter Show has you sorted in that department with over 14,000 creatures calling the Show home this year.

From puppies to show jumping horses, and llamas to cattle – no matter what sort of animal you favour – big or small, fluffy or scaly – the Sydney Royal Easter Show has you covered.

All your favourite carnival rides are back in action. There’s the rainbow Super Slide of the Kids Carnival, the 8,000 LED lights of Freak Out, Haunted Hotel, Haunted House, and more.

Make sure you keep your Sydney Royal Easter Show visit going into the evening, because world-leading home-grown pyrotechnic heroes Howard & Sons are putting on another fireworks spectacular and it is not to be missed.
