Sydney Royal Easter Show 2024

Australia's largest ticketed event returns to Sydney Olympic Park from Friday 22 March to Tuesday 2 April 2024.

Over this 12 day period, the Park is expected to be extremely busy, as we welcome upwards of 800,000 visitors daily. During this time, there will also be other major events happening here, including concerts, sporting matches, and more.

Four photos. Crowds with ferris wheel. Cattle with its handler. Scones on a plate. Children sliding on a giant slide.

To support these events, there will be some changes to Park access and parking, as well as road closures starting from Thursday 1 March, with access restored starting from Wednesday 10 April (see details below). These are to assist with pedestrian safety, set up and staging of the events, as well as managing the traffic flow in and around the Park, particularly during peak times.

Subject to change. Information correct as of 14/02/2024.
