2007 Sydney Royal Easter Show

Better late than never (been busy - AND had trouble with blogger - updated Firefox and now seems fine).

Took the family (wife, daughter and self) to the Sydney Royal Easter Show last weekend. We don't go every year, but, like most years we have gone, had a great family day out. It is so big (amongst the top 3 'state fair' type shows in the world I'm led to believe) that you can't see it all in a day - not even close

I try occasionally to look at it through the eyes of a newcomer. Renews my enthusiasm.

'The Royal' as it is sometimes called, 'brings the country to the city'. The new venue was built as part of the site for the Sydney 2000 Olympics. In fact was finished 2 years before then, and the first two Easter shows helped test out the Olympic venue (transport, water, infrastructure and the like).

What I really like is the original and quirky architecture of the arenas and pavilions - each different.

A great family day out (Wore us out though).
