Sydney Royal Easter Show

Because the Easter post still isn't ready (I need Murray's big camera pics) - here are some photos from when Genna & I went to the Easter Show - first time for both of us!!
There was a number of small kiddy rides (train, carousel) but she insisted she HAD to go on the big ride!

So we bought our tickets & got a car to ourselves - YAY!

Look Mama pigs and baby pigs!

A lovely baby goat :)

Giving a baby a snack - the petting zoo area was awesome

Suddenly a few huge sheep ran in and nearly knocked her over - she was yelling while backing away - and still holding the cup of food (that they were trying to shove their whole faces into). I said DROP THE CUP, then retrieved it from them myself. We finished off with another baby goat off to the side!

More pigs!


And a foal too  - cute!
Best shot of the day!!!
Corn dog time! (apparently called dagwood dogs here!)

This reminded me of the MN state fair! The whole thing did really - in a good way :)

Pig racing time!! They also had diving pigs (that dove into a pool) - fun to watch!


And ice cream of course :)

Elvis performing for the crowds - he wasn't bad!

And finally we had a peek at the competition hall - some of the cakes were stunning - but we really liked this Shawn the Sheep (a cartoon we like) - super cute!

A fun day! We enjoyed the show :) Would definitely go again!


  1. Looks like Genna and you had a fantastic time. Loved the analogy to the Minnesota State Fair.
    Yes, that photo with the lamb was very sweet.
    Thanks for sharing your day with us!
    Love, Grandma and Grandpa
