Royal Show Tips:

Make sure the kids have your phone number – Benjamin Blutton

Sit in the grandstands with kids to eat lunch and get away from it for a while – Ally

For the family, must see/do is ending the night with fireworks and best tip (if you have kids) – do the kids rides after 7, there are no line-ups (I’m assuming because most families with young kids go during the day, so they’ve gone home by then). – Third Umpire Steve

Avoiding the madness – Get there when it opens on a Sunday and be out by lunchtime! – Soph

Arrive first thing in the morning – Ally

I avoid the madness by steering clear of the show rides and sideshow alley – Monique


Take the kids to the Dog Pavilion for a break. Grab a drink in relative peace, watch some dogs in action and maybe meet a greyhound. – Wade

Leave after lunch, get a pass out- chill at home and eat dinner at home too and come back for fireworks – Ally

Get mum to collect discarded drink cans throughout the day. She only needs to collect 40 or 50 cans and that’s an extra Bertie Beetle showbag! – Jeff

Take your own food. Oh and leave the kids at home hehe – Debbie

Wear comfortable shoes – Debbie

There is actually a lot of free stuff to do at the show. Just have to be organised and check out the show guide/website beforehand. We take our own food and drinks and try and get our tickets the cheapest way possible (RAA have a cheap family pass for members). – Alana


Write your mobile number on your kid’s arm. – Vicki

Get the kids to pick show bags before you go. – Vicki

Get show bags at the end. – Vicki

Try and win tickets for entry. – Vicki

No matter the weather pack ponchos $2 from cheap as chips. – Vicki

At the end of the show make a deal with your child to put $5 a week away till next year’s show. – Vicki


Get the show bags last so u don’t have that luggage while walking around – Samantha
