Once a year, the country comes to the town of Sydney and the city folk get to experience some country life.
Even though, many people think of the Easter time show to be of a children's playground, full of expensive voyages and screaming youngsters, there is another side to the Sydney show far more suited to adults.

The Grand Parades
Every year more than 1200 creatures are on show within the Grand Parades, and many more animals are on display in the animal pavilions ranging from alpacas to bees. Learn about the farming methods and produce associated with these kinds of animals.
The Sydney Regal Competitions
The spine of the Easter show is the Sydney Regal Competitions. Everything from martial arts styles & crafts, frogs & reptiles to wood chopping and cake making are judged at the show.
Look at the pavilions to see the winners or watch one of many scheduled judgings. A favourite is usually the District Displays Competition, where farmers from designated regions get together to display their fresh produce in the most creative method they can.
If you happen to be there on the last day of the show, all the remainders are auctioned away at bargain prices. Along with the animals and competitions - there is a range of entertainment and also shows enjoyable for all age groups - everything is described on Australian's Sydney Royal Competition's blog.
The key arena is a great spot to stop for lunch capture, some of the action, or go through the day’s program to determine what else will be on. A day at the Easter show can be turned into weekend with a stay in one of Sydney’s many hotels.
