Load up your arms with show bags... it's Royal Easter Show time!

From pug pens to cheeseburger pies, showbags to fairground rides – it can be difficult to know where to start with the Royal Easter Show. For two weeks over Easter, Sydney Showground is home to a country fair on an epic scale. There are woodchoppers, sheep shearers and Australia’s best bull riders. But there's also the Pet Pavilion, where you can see adorable cats, dogs, rabbits, mice, birds, frogs and reptiles hit the stage. Make the most of the sugar high from Nutella-injected doughnuts and hit the Crazy Spinning Coaster, the Avenger and the Giant Slide. Feeling nauseous is part of the fun.

I'd say you need to pick your moment to get the most out of it. I went on Good Friday and it was so crowded it wasn't funny. Really hot with little shade to be had and having arrived early at 9AM it felt like there wasn't much happening at all. It seems they've stacked a lot of the entertainment towards the end of the day. Given my time again, I'd be going for the cheaper ticket that lets you in from 4PM.
