Sugar junkies, thrill seekers and animal lovers should prepare their showbag-carrying muscles for the Royal Easter Show, and people looking for edifying events should check out all the talks and discussions happening in Sydney. Don't forget the double-up week of public holidays for Easter and ANZAC Day in the second half of the month.
