It seems like Christmas just went by yesterday, and yet, Holy Week and Easter is already coming up. In Australia, Easter is widely celebrated. There’s this show in Sydney called the “Sydney Royal Easter Show”, and it has been around for decades.
The Sydney Royal Show was first held back in 1823, which grew to be Australia’s largest annual ticketed event. It attracts about 850,000 attendees yearly, and the revenue generated from it allowed the organizers to to invest in different competitions, education, and agricultural programs.
The show promotes and celebrates the Australian culture as well, may it be rural traditions or modern day lifestyle. It provides a unique experience for everyone, whether you’re a local or a visitor. The city streets can get pretty busy during the event though, which will be held during the 6th all throughout the 19th of April. The best way to beat the crowd is to get a car rental – so you’d never have to feel uncomfortable during the whole experience.
To get the full experience, you’d have to make sure to plot everything and plan which ones you’re going to see. Here are some of the events that you might be interested in during the 14-day event:
