Animal Walk trail at Sydney Royal Easter Show, Sydney Olympic Park, NSW


Follow the Animal Walk trail
The Animal Walk Trail is ideal for families and animal lovers who want to see and meet animals from the Australian country and Outback. Walk the trail to learn about the important role that animals such as sheep, chickens, cows, horses and dogs play in the country’s agricultural industry. The various animal pavilions feature demonstrations and shows every day for visitors and the Farmyard Nursery provides a unique opportunity to feed, brush and learn about farm animals from around Australia.

See some of Australia’s best produce at the Australian District Exhibit
The Australian District Exhibit inside the Woolworths Fresh Food Dome showcase local produce from Australian farms in near-vertical mosaics. Using more than 50,000 pieces of fresh fruit, vegetables, grains, pulses and other, farmers and volunteers spend many months planning, sourcing, designing and installing the colourful tapestries of produce. On your way through the exhibit, you can talk to the farmers and learn about what they grow as well as purchasing some fresh produce from the same regions on show.

Watch the fireworks in the Main Arena
Every night that the Show is open, you can watch a bright and colourful fireworks display in the Main Arena. In 2016, the Colours of the Outback fireworks show will be accompanied by an all-new soundtrack featuring the Australian Aboriginal instrument, the didgeridoo. The display is preceded by a range of Australian country and Outback activities in the Main Arena, including the new performance of The Man From Snowy River.


Buy authentic Australian products around the showground
Around the showground you can find quality, authentic Australian products such as Akubra hats, woollen Ugg boots, fresh food and wine. You can buy and take home a sample of Australia’s rural culture as well as picking up one of the Show’s famous showbags in the Showbag Hall. These bags are a staple for regular visitors to the Royal Easter Show and contain everything from costumes and toys to quality Australian produce.
