    My two year old is obsessed with bags, you could call her the original bag lady, the bigger the better… She finds them and fills them up full of her toys, books and of course snacks.

  • Shu-Ching Chang

    The Great Show is a wonderful show for everyone, no age limited. Especially, show bags bring a lot of excitement and joys.

    As a child, my Grandmother took me (the eldest Grandchild) and her 16 children, my Uncles and Aunties to the show every Year. Best memories as a child, she’d take her jeep (not the car brand) and we’d fill it with show bags. We’d study the guide before we went and picked the ones we wanted. There was a limit of course.

  • Alex He

    As a kid I didn’t live in the city so we didn’t get to go to the (Perth Royal Agricultural) Show every year, so we just loved everything about it when we did get to go – the train ride there, the random stuff our parents wanted to look at, the rides, show bags and the fireworks at the end of the day!

  • Jasmine Nelson

    Showbags of course

    The atmosphere

  • Patricia Comer

    The smell of dust in the air and freshly spun fairy floss. I love the colours, noise and the sounds of excitement, joy of people from all walks as they get rocked, bumped and spun around in the Rides. I love the wide eyed children seeing young animals in the petting zoo and animal displays. I love the displays and how vendors are a little bit more engaging and enthusiastic about the products and services they offer. I love it when you can eat a dagwood dog with sauce on it and it spills down your chin and you can feel that look of satisfaction and enjoyment and not feel as though you’ve grossed anyone out. It’s like a great place to have that happen and it’s ok.

    I love what the show is all about, bringing the country to the city, so we city slickers can get some sort of an insight into, and a taste of country life. From super cute baby animals & their parents, working dogs, prancing ponies, and all the yummy treats too.

  • Ern

    The sideshows. Trying my aim, and my luck, to win something awesome for the kids or big and fluffy for my wife. Sadly though, always lots of plastic trinkets come my way, but the fun can’t be beat. For some reason, even now I’m (supposedly) a grown up, just seeing them sends a wave of excitement through me + loads of memories from when I was a little tacker and my Granddad would hold me up so I could put the balls in the clowns mouth (soz, that sounds bad!), to win the biggest prize on the back shelf.

  • Shannon Wotton

    I love the carnival atmosphere of the show, the rides, the animals, the food, the showbags, love it all!

    It was hard to decide between Bertie and Pokemon.

Scary rides are like child birth for me, you forget, until you are in the moment and you’re like why am I doing this again ” I want out ” LOL… My kids are pretty well balanced, one won’t go near anything other than teacup rides and the other wants to go upside down and spin and scream. The shows are a great opportunity to do things you normally wouldn’t do like spend $30 winning a $5 toy 😉

    The animal nursery, no matter how old I am it makes me sigh every time, baby animals are the best

But most of all the look on the children’s faces when they see Sideshow Ally and the Showbags it’s priceless, because at 40 I still feel that excitement as if I was a little girl still.

  • Mez

  • Kelly Lucas

    Being able to walk around and try produce from the area and abroad that I may not have tried otherwise

    The Animal Nursery was incredible! To get up close with some many furry little creatures my two year old was in absolute amazement, was so lovely to watch!

  • Gee

    Show bag hall!

  • Nicole D

    The animals and farmers. It’s so lovely to meet them and get an insight into what they do day in day out. More importantly it’s great to be reminded where it all starts. It’s easy to forget what generations of families have grown up doing and where our food comes from. It’s nice to show appreciation for it and have a chat!

  • marypreston

    I love the excitement of the show. The ring events are always fantastic. Love the sheep dog trials & the animal nursery. I’m always impressed by the quilts, crafts, flowers and cooking.

  • Alicia Cathrene Kimberley

    Love it all!! The show bags the rises the animals and the food! Best day out ever

  • Blossom

    You name it, I and my family love it. One of our favourite showbags is “Yellow Brick Road”.
    As you go to different areas you pick up your goodies. Go during the morning and you have collected your lunch – no standing in long queues with impatient young children who just want to see more. The rides the children love while I hold the goodies and care for our baby while Dad joins the older ones. The fireworks provided the little ones aren’t too tired by then. The decorated cakes, floral displays, the animals especially the childrens section which they never want to leave. The precision car driving – we can’t miss them. Two upset petrol heads otherwise.

  • I love the rides! Fast ones. But not the Gravitron. Oh my gosh, the vertigo!

  • maggie-may

    I love the colour, sounds and smells of the show. Fun fun fun!!!

  • Lenna Reinhard

    The feeling has been there since I was a child, excitement as I would watch the advertisements for the show back in the 80s, the atmosphere was amazing, a day full of pure joy, a little big of chocolate, fairly floss, hot cinnamon donuts, all down the hatch and then shake it up with a few rides. I loved the smell of cattle, looking at displays, and yummy food galore. To end the day a fantastic array of fireworks before heading home and starting my 365 days before the next day of pure bliss. I still have the showbag catalogues from the 90s that I keep in a memory box. It’s funny, a few things change like what I head for first when I get to the show, but the excitement will never leave me – when I’m 100 I will be whizzing around the show in a motorised wheelchair – I will always make it there!

  • Diana Angel

    My daughter is very excited with everything on the show, she loves animals, teacups, fairy floss…Her face says it all-big smile.

    This years show we did attend,
    A great day out with my daughter and friend.
    Unfortunately it all was a bit too tiring,
    Our energy levels quickly expiring.
    Left the show with no bag in hand,
    Saddest little girl in all the land.
    A Paw Patrol bag we’d have loved to get,
    To start the beginnings of her very own set.
    She loves all the pups and Ryder too,
    But her favourite is Rubble with his yellow hue.
    Thank you for this chance to win,
    To let her Paw Patrol collection begin.

Now having my own children i love seeing the excitement on their faces. We dont go every year its way to expensive and can be a big waste of money every 2-3 years i can justify and the kiddies really enjoy it because they’ve forgotten what its like!
