What’s new at the Show for 2017?
Little Hands on the Land
New exhibit! The Daily Telegraph Paddock will be transformed into a kid-sized working farm aimed to teach 2 – 10 year olds about agriculture from crop-to-shop.
Little Hands on the Land is a free activity that takes children on a journey through 9 stations including a chook shed, fruit orchard, sheep shed, vegie patch, cow shed, pony barrel race and an outback tractor pull. Next stop, the farmers’ market where produce collected along the way is traded for farm dollars which can be spent at the final destination – the supermarket.
The gourmet food and wine section of the Show is moving from the great outdoors into this premium pavilion space. Here you can enjoy beer, cider and wine by the glass or try something new at the whisky, gin and rum bar. The venue will also feature pop-up eateries, chic food stalls and the Sydney Royal Corner Store.
Say hello to all creatures fluffy, hairy, feathered and scaled in the new Pet Pavilion. Every day a different species of domestic animal will be on show in competition. Here you’ll meet people from breed societies and find the purrfect present for your pet. Head to the Purina Pro Plan Dog Pavilion and Dog Judging Lawn to watch man’s best friend go paw to paw in the Sydney Royal Dog Competitions and be there as the champions of the canine world are decided.
Carnival - The Beast
A real Show beauty is The Beast soaring to extraordinary heights. Swing 45 meters into the air on the giant pendulum alongside 19 other thrill-seekers. This adrenalin pumping ride is equipped with an industry approved safety system.
Record Number of Show bags!
With a record-breaking 381 Show bags released for 2017, there will be something for everyone. From the traditional Bertie Beetle Bag, to Trolls, to Spirit State Health and Fitness Pack – the choice of bags is phenomenal!
Every night at 6.30pm entertainment kicks off with the high energy Sydney Royal Rodeo Series (except 12 and 13 April), powerful vocals of Ben Ransom, followed by The Man From Snowy River stadium production. Then, feel the rumble as V8 utes and motoX daredevils engage in the Battle of the Golden Helmet. Finally you’ll be dazzled with a spectacular fireworks finale with a title that says it all, ‘Cracker of a Cracker Show’.
