The Wimbledon of Woodchop
The Sydney Royal Woodchopping and Sawing Competition is a huge crowd favourite, with stands of enthusiastic spectators cheering on the mighty men and women who take up the axe. The competition, long regarded as the Wimbledon of Woodchop, attracts the best of the best, all eager to prove themselves as the woodchips fly. Don’t miss your chance to take a seat in the specially built MasterChef Woodchop Stadium and watch our competitors vie for the top titles and ultimate bragging rights. The competition starts today and runs for the first 11 days of the Show.
Little Hands on the Land
After welcoming over 28,000 little farmers two years ago, the Paddock has once again been transformed into a pint-sized working farm aimed to teach two to 10 year olds about agriculture from crop-to-shop. Children go on a journey through 10 stations including a chook shed, fruit orchard, sheep shed, veggie patch, cow shed, pony barrel race and an outback tractor pull. Next stop, the farmers’ market where produce collected along the way is traded for farm dollars which can be spent at the final destination – the supermarket.
New Food Precinct
The hawkers on Hawkesbury St offer authentic flavours and easy-to-eat Asian street food with a brilliant blend of authentic, unique, old-school and modern fusion. Follow the lanterns and lights strung from the trees and the aroma of spices to find the Show’s first ever noodle market.
