There are loads of free Junior Farm Hands activities in the Woolworths Food Farm that will keep kids entertained for hours.  Primary School aged kids will learn all about farming and where their food comes from through hands-on interactive learning like the opportunity to mill grain, trowel through the vegetable digging plot, collect an egg from the chook house, and so much more.

Kids can also experience a slice of farm life by getting a tractor licence when they climb up onto the orange Kubota tractor or meet with NSW Farmers who will hand out Jillaroo and Jackaroo work cards if they can successfully answer some simple questions or complete a Farm Play challenge on the mini farm.

Rural Achievers and Showgirl presentations

Find out which Rural Achievers have the gift of the gab and who will take home the title of 2018 The Land Sydney Royal Showgirl at this prestigious awards ceremony.

Find out which Rural Achievers have the gift of the gab and who will take home the title of 2018 The Land Sydney Royal Showgirl at this prestigious awards ceremony.

The RAS Rural Achiever Award and The Land Sydney Royal Showgirl Competition are state-wide leadership programs run by the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW to recognise future leaders.

The Rural Achiever Award aims to acknowledge the achievements of young people working hard to make a significant contribution to their local community and to rural Australia. A public speaking showcase at the Sydney Royal Easter Show gives each of the eight finalists the opportunity to demonstrate their eloquence and oratory skills, voicing their opinion on a current issue affecting Australia's agricultural industry.

The first Showgirl competition was held in 1962 and attracted women interested in strengthening links with local organisations. Today, contestants are young rural women with purpose and ambition who have competed in their local Show Society and won a zone final to end up at the Sydney Royal Easter Show. At the Show they face a panel of three judges and a series of questions, all in front of a live audience. The winning Showgirl becomes an ambassador for rural NSW, the agricultural show movement as a whole, and the 2019 Sydney Royal Easter Show.
