The Sydney Royal Easter Show is Australia's largest annual event representing a massive logistical exercise. The RAS is hugely grateful for the 400-plus enthusiastic volunteers, some of whom come back year after year to undertake essential roles and provide Showgoers a welcoming smile, a helping hand and keen map reading abilities.

Volunteering at the Show is a great way to meet people, plus there's the opportunity to work across a variety of areas including animals, arts, competitions, entertainment and children's educational activities. For more information on what's involved, download and read the Event Volunteers Information Booklet.
