Safety at the Show
Information wristbands are a useful tool for parents or carers attending the Show and will be provided by Transport NSW. These wristbands can be easily picked up from the Main Entry and allow parents or carers to add their contact information, making it easier to reunite with their child in the event they become separated.

When you come into contact with farm animals at the Sydney Royal Easter Show, just remember two simple rules...
- Take care of the animals
Animals are unpredictable and should be approached with caution and
respect, so remember to:
- Supervise children at all times
- Do not pick up any animals
- Do not chase or run after the animals
- Do not sit or place children on the animals
- Do not eat or have food around animals
- Do not pick up the straw off the ground
- Take care of yourself
To avoid illness that could be transferred from an animal's skin, wool,
hair or saliva, remember:
- Do not touch your mouth with your hands after contact with the animals
- Do not kiss animals or press them to your face
- Do not eat animal’s food
- Wash your hands with soap and water immediately after exiting animal pavilions at the provided washing stations
