Sydney Royal Easter show: Friday 23 March to Tuesday 3 April 2018, Sydney Olympic Park
Sydney Royal Easter Show is Australia’s biggest Easter celebration, with its carnival catered to all ages. Immerse yourself in agricultural activities with horse-riding, rodeo shows, wood-chopping and more. Children will find themselves in the ultimate Easter playground: think farmyard nurseries; rotating Ferris wheels; mini railways and of course, who could forget the iconic Easter show bags.
Insider Tip: Take your kids on the Wave Swinger, this trademark Easter Show ride has you riding sky-high as you spin through the air in the most unusual way. Also, check out the iconic Ferris wheel; the only Ferris wheel in Australia fit with rotating carriages.
Visit Koko Black’s Lounge and Chocolatier Boutique in Strand Arcade
Handcrafted by Melbourne’s master chocolatiers and inspired by Belgian tradition, Koko Black’s unique lounge and boutique is the most luxurious way to celebrate Easter. Koko Black invites you to experience a World of Chocolate, with their annual Easter Collection highly anticipated for release. Last year they debuted luxe chocolate pencil cases, perfect for children, and extended their signature truffle collection to include Easter-inspired praline quail eggs. A very tasteful way to indulge this holiday!
