Come on an adventure at the Sydney Royal Easter Show –  a chance to experience the real Australia
 
 
The countdown is on to Australia’s favourite family event – the iconic Sydney Royal Easter Show. This great tradition showcases everything Australian – from our bush heritage to our culture and people, our Australian cuisine and shopping, and the best in Aussie entertainment, agriculture and animal competitions. First held in 1823, the Sydney Royal Easter Show is the largest event in the southern hemisphere and is the only way to experience the real Australia.
For this year's event, Show bosses have travelled to Greater China to personally invite our Asian neighbours in Guangzhou, Shanghai and Hong Kong to this world-class festival. The Hong Kong leg of the roadshow will see four performances at East Point City in Tseung Kwan O. On the afternoons of 26 and 27 February, families will be able to witness expert woodchoppers displaying their skills, the Australian national whip-cracking champion scaring unsuspecting members of the audience, and the Man with Iron Skin stunning the crowd with his infamous 'bed of nails' stunt. Balloons for the kids and man-sized kangaroos will complete the carnival atmosphere.
"In 2010 we were proud to welcome more than 13,000 international visitors from Hong Kong, China, Japan, Korea and Singapore," said Peter King, Chief Executive of the Royal Agricultural Society of New South Wales, which runs the event. "This year we hope many more will come and join in the excitement with us – the event usually attracts almost a million people," he added.
In 2011 the Sydney Royal Easter Show will be bigger and better than ever before. The 14-day programme, which runs between 14 – 27 April, is bursting at the seams, with something exciting for all the family. Alongside time-honoured favourites like the Psycho Sideshow, international woodchopping and the spectacular fresh food, there are plenty of brand new attractions. The night-time performances will feature wild horses and Australia’s best country horse riders. There is also the Australian Frog and Reptile Show and the first-time appearance of "Fonzy” – Australia’s tallest bullock.
Come and test your bravery on one of the 56 thrilling rides in Australia’s largest carnival, take your pick from more than 300 showbags, watch the bravest riders compete in the rodeo and feed the baby animals in the animal nursery.
The Sydney Royal Easter Show is not only a fun-filled day out, but a worthy platform to showcase Australian Agricultural excellence and to educate young Australians about where their food comes from and the farmers who grow it.
“We're proud of the Royal Easter Show's history as one of Australia's most family-friendly events. Children aged three years and under have free admission to the Show – bring the kids along for the day and introduce them to one of Australia’s oldest traditions – the Royal Easter Show,” said Peter King.
So whether it's a culinary feast or a day of adrenaline-pumping action that tickles your fancy, it's all here: fireworks and fashion, rides and races, animals and entertainment. The Sydney Royal Easter Show is truly your ticket to the real Australia.
 
Some of the highlights include:
Internationally-renowned woodchopping experts
Award winning Australian livestock – including more than 14,000 farm animals; cattle, sheep, horses, pigs, goats, dogs, alpacas, birds and native Australian animals
