Sydney's best value Family Show will return following a COVID-19-imposed hiatus in 2020.  

Whether it's a bunny hopping competition, throwing a line in, cuddling a lizard, carnival rides or showbags, this year's show is packed with entertainment for the whole family. 

'The Sydney Family Show is a perennial favourite with Sydney families, providing exceptional value for money during the Easter school holidays with entry to the show costing only $40 for a family of four,' said Britt Osborne, Event Director of the Sydney Family Show. 

The newly introduced entry fee is in compliance with NSW Health Covid guidelines of a controlled and registered ticketing system for all events. Entry to the Show includes a massive range of free activities including access to the Reptile Show, the bunny hopping competition on Good Friday, a daily stage show, plus 2 hours of free parking.  

Another free activity is the Shimano Fishing Show, featuring nationally known fishing presenter and enthusiast, Dave 'Mossy' Moss. With his giant 10 metre long fishing tank filled with barramundi and bream, Mossy will guide the audience on how to successfully 'reel one in' with a range of fantastic tips and advice. 

Thrill-seekers will flock to adrenaline-fuelled carnival rides such as the Super Sizzler and YoYo while the more sedate Classic Carousel and dodgem cars will also bring delight. Two hour unlimited ride sessions are excellent value at only $30 per person, with an option to also purchase individual ride tickets. 

Time-honoured show traditions such as carnival games and show bags will again be available, setting the stage for a fantastic and value-filled family day out. 

'The Sydney Family Show is simply the best value show in Sydney - for only $15, show-goers can purchase a discounted four game pass allowing them a chance to try their hand at family favourites such as the laughing clowns, smash a dolly and pluck a duck,' said Ms Osborne. 

The health and safety of all show-goers remains front of mind for the organisers. 

'The successful Spring Family Fair that we ran in September 2020 was one of the first large scale COVID-Safe outdoor events in Australia - likewise, the Sydney Family Show will also follow necessary COVID restrictions and hygiene measures including multiple hand sanitising stations with queues marked for social distancing,' said Ms Osborne. 

Entry prices to the Sydney Family Show are $15 for an adult; $7 for a child; and $40 for a family of four - pre-booking tickets is strongly encouraged. Rides, showbags and carnival games are at an additional cost. For more information and to purchase tickets, please visit
