Get Ready, The 2017 Royal Melbourne Show is Coming!

  • Family

Get your showbag-lifting arms ready, the Royal Melbourne Show was officially launched today and promises one of the most unforgettable experiences on the family calendar this year!

From getting up close to hundreds of farm animals, getting involved in the fun, interactive activities set up right across the Show, and eating an array of the very best award-winning produce to getting right into the swing of things with all the rides and attractions you know and love from your own childhood, the Royal Melbourne Show is going to be one Very Good Time.

What you need to know:

The Royal Melbourne Show will be held from Saturday 23 September to Tuesday 3 October at the Melbourne Showgrounds.

Show gates are open daily from 9.30am to 9pm, with pavilions open from 10am.

The show is easily accessible by public transport, with trains, trams and buses making for a quick and simple commute (as opposed to parking, which is not usually quick nor simple at that time of year!) - check Public Transport Victoria's website for specific details.

Kids under 5 are FREE!

Tickets are now on sale and you can save up to 25% by pre-purchasing tickets until Thursday 31 August 2017.
