For the past 170 years (minus the past 2 in account of the COVID-19 outbreak), families from the city and the country come together and create happy memories at the infamous Royal Melbourne Show. It will be worth the wait! There are various ticket bundles to suit all families and budgets, and with 450,000 visitors set to pass through the gates over 11 days, it will be one to remember.
This show is unlike any other, offering award-winning food and wine amidst carnival games and thrilling rides. The music scene will also be thriving, featuring local talent.
There have been a few changes to the showground since the last show in 2019, including a brand new building. The all-new Melbourne Royal Show entertainment precinct was built in the centre of the grounds, the new epicentre for all your fun activities. Sesame Street shows twice daily (pick up the showbag for the full experience)! Witness the daring Motocross team and even see grand illusionist Cosentino.
Just when you thought the show couldn’t get better, they introduced ‘The Show After Dark’ this year! Get a ticket to experience headliners such as Baker Boy, The Veronica’s, Havana Brown and more! Tickets are on sale soon!
Arguably most important of all, it will be brimming with our showbags! No show would be complete without taking home an armful of goodies. You can expect all the favourites and some newer surprises. If you are a lolly enthusiast, our finest confectionary showbags have all you could ever want and more (think Chuppa Chupps, Fizzer and Warheads). If chocolate is more your thing, we have every decadent treat from Caramilk to Cadbury. If you are more into novelty showbags, we offer a wide range of everyone’s favourite toys and games (with a bit of nostalgia thrown in of course). Even NRL showbags are on offer, so snag your favourite teams! We have something for everyone to suit all budgets. The whole family will be satisfied and enjoy their showbags while browsing the show’s many attractions.
So gather your friends, family, neighbours, and get down to the Melbourne showgrounds for days (and nights) of fun!
