The school holidays are nearing and parents are wondering how to keep the kids entertained. The simple answer is The Royal Melbourne Show.
This year’s Royal Melbourne Show is set to take the annual festival to new heights with the promise of dinosaurs, parades and even robots. The kids will love getting up close and personal with cows, sheep, poultry, dogs and even alpacas or rock up to one of the shows to see if you can pick the winning animal. For those just looking to cuddle a lamb or baby chicken, the petting zoo is usually heaving with families (and everyone else) looking for a dose of cute.
This year, guests can visit the brand-new Jurassic Creatures pavilion where you can bring out your inner paleontologist and meet some friendly animatronic dinosaurs. There’s also the Future Pavilion where you can learn about (and play with) fun new technologies like virtual reality as well as enjoy robot demonstrations, a gaming precinct and a digital shopping experience. There are some amazing food options at the show for all of the foodies out there. Watch which stalls the crowds are drawn to – it’s a great way to find some tasty (and often local) food.
The show has free arts and craft workshops for both adults and kids, as well as plenty of exhibits showing off other people’s masterpieces. And no trip to the Show is complete either without a gawk at the woodchop pavilion. There’s around 50 different events to watch but make sure you turn up on time in order to get your spot in the crowd.
The 2019 Royal Melbourne Show has some fantastic entertainment lined up this year. The Elton John Experience will perform at the expo alongside twice daily performances from illusionist Cosentino (who first shot to fame in the 2011 series of Australia’s Got Talent) and the PAW Patrol. There will also be nightly fireworks!
The best part about this is that you can pre purchase tickets online up until September 20thwith a 20% discount. There’s also up to 50 per cent off if you visit after 5pm if you are looking for a night Royal Melbourne Show experience.
