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 trowel through the Vegetable Digging plot, grind grains into flour, collect an egg from the chook house, weigh themselves on the Cattle Crush, roll out dough to make pies 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.

Sheep Shearing & Display

Super-speedy world-champion shearers will showcase their sensational skills every day at the Show.

Super-speedy world-champion shearers will showcase their sensational skills every day at the Show. But they do more than just shear - along the way they share insights into their work and lives.

As they present a new line-up of performing sheep for your delight, you'll laugh at tales of life on the land and the goings-on in the shearing sheds. Each session some lucky audience members are invited onstage to help take the clippers to a woolly sheep, as the experts explain the tricks of the trade.

The Shearing Display at the Sydney Royal Easter Show brings together world-class shearers who collectively have vast experience and knowledge of all matters concerning the wool industry.

Jim Murray is Head-Shearer at the Show and he'll be joined by Ian Elkin who was in the news in 2015 when he was chosen to shear a sheep rescued by the RSPCA in Canberra. The sheep had lost its flock and accumulated a fleece weighing a staggering 40.45 kilograms. The usual weight of shorn fleeces is between 5-6 kilograms.
