Celebrating its 10th anniversary, this year’s Sydney Family Show features lots of new attractions, premium entertainment, exhibitions, stalls, showbags and more, all within the easy to get to, compact grounds of the Entertainment Quarter. And the best thing is, entry is absolutely FREE!
Among the entertainment highlights is Shaun The Sheep live on stage – appearing for the first time at Sydney Family Show. This little woolly celebrity and his friends have charmed kids and adults alike in audiences around the globe. For a thrill of a different kind catch the Shimano Fishing Tank Show where pros will fish for bream or barramundi from a 10 metre long tank. (Don’t worry, they toss the caught fish back in again.) Come over to the Sound Life Dome and relax to ambient music, and yoga and meditation programs; then go cuddle some cute farm animals at the Animal Nursery.
If you’d prefer an adrenalin kick, get some thrills on the Haunted House, Jungle Safari, Dodgem Cars, Mini Pirate Ship or one of the many other rides. For smaller scale amusement, play a carnival game and maybe win a prize.
Children’s charity, Variety, will present the Variety Easter Fun Day on 16 Apr, raising funds to support kids with special needs. The day will include musical picnics, entertainment and a Fun Hub for kids of all abilities.
Come in on Good Friday and watch hundreds of special breed, beautifully groomed rabbits compete in their own version of “Bunny Idol” – the Rabbit Competition. They’ll vie for honours in “Best In Show” and a hopping competition. There won’t be a hare out of place.
There are plenty of food options and amenities. Close to public transport or EQ carpark (first two hrs free).
