Sydney Showground is the events precinct at Sydney Olympic Park. It was established in 1998 as a purpose-built home for major events as part of the NSW Government’s multi-million dollar development of the site for the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games.
We are an integral part of the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW (RAS), a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to promoting excellence in agriculture. Every year, we host the Sydney Royal Easter Show, the flagship event of the RAS and the nation’s largest annual event. Our profits are invested back into supporting Australian agriculture and rural communities.
Where we are
Located in the heart of the Sydney metropolitan area, we are the best connected major venue in the city. Trains run every 10 minutes seven days a week from a station just across the road, and there are frequent bus services as well as a ferry from Circular Quay. We are easily accessible by road with parking for 10,000 cars at reasonable rates. Our venue is well known to Sydneysiders as the home of the Show.
Who we are
At Sydney Showground, we are passionate about creating big experiences. Drawing on our unmatched expertise in major events, we work in close partnership with clients to design spectacular, successful events at any scale. We’re known for our friendly, down-to-earth attitude, our professionalism, and our ability to deliver on what we promise. And we pride ourselves on being easy to work with and communicating in an open, honest way.
