The Sydney Royal Easter Show

The Sydney Easter Show is traditionally when Country comes to visit Town. These days it is at Homebush, at the main venue used for the very successful Sydney 2000 Olympic Games.
If you are visiting around Easter, especially if you have young ones in tow, a day at the Sydney Show can be up to 12 hours.
There are the usual games, rides, food at sometimes eye-watering prices (you can bring your own with you), displays of food, arts & crafts - and ANIMALS!
Your chance to see angora goats, alpacas, pigs, as well as horses, cattle, sheep and dogs (but no cats).
This year there were snakes and lizards too.
There's wood chopping, and all sorts of other events, often involving horses. It's a great opportunity for keen photographers too.Sydney Royal Easter Show
