Families come to the show to enjoy the vast array of carnival games and rides. Kids also get to watch and learn about animals at an animal nursery where they can feed and pet goats, rabbits, chickens, and much more!

Food lovers will also be excited to know that the show offers an exciting range of food and drink stalls. Each stall offers award-winning produce, regional wines, finger food and homemade desserts. Furthermore, the show offers cooking workshops and engaging programs for adults and kids alike.

Kids also love getting showbags with chocolates, lollies, toys, costumes for the kids and a range of cooking, fashion and sports showbags for adults.

Entry to the Show includes a massive range of free activities, including access to the Reptile Show, the bunny hopping competition on Good Friday, a daily stage show, plus two hours of free parking.

Available daily from 10am to 5pm at The Animal Nursery Marquee.

Carnival Rides

Everyone get ready now for some serious fun and excitement on all our thrilling rides. All your favourites will be there for different ages and heights, PLUS the new Giant Ferris Wheel!

Games & Sideshow Alley

Can you catch a duck, throw a dart, or toss a ring? You can test your skills at over a dozen carnival games down the show alley and win great prizes!

The Sydney Family Show is at the Entertainment Quarter, 122 Lang Road, Moore Park (next to the Sydney Cricket Ground). There are plenty of easy and convenient ways to get to the show from all parts of Sydney.

Light Rail
Catch the light rail service to Moore Park on the L2 Randwick Line or L3 Kingsford Line to get within a short walking distance of EQ. The Moore Park stop is on Anzac Parade just north of Lang Road. Services run every 5 to 10 minutes between Circular Quay and Moore Park, and every 10 to 15 minutes between Moore Park and Randwick or Juniors Kingsford, from 5am until 1am daily.

There are several regular route buses that stop along Anzac Parade, Oxford Street and other nearby roads within short walking distance of EQ. Use the Trip Planner at transportnsw.info to plan your trip by bus.

The Entertainment Quarter operates a managed taxi rank within the site from Errol Flynn Boulevard.

Car Parking
The EQ Carpark makes parking at The Entertainment Quarter easy. It offers 2000 parking spaces and a maximum vehicle height of 2.1m. While you’re out and about, you can also have your car washed and detailed.

It’s about a 25-minute walk from Central Station to EQ via Devonshire Street and the Albert ‘Tibby’ Cotter walkway.

So bring your family and friends to the Sydney Family Show and have a fun day!

    • Hi Natalie,

      Looking at the ticket information on the official website, it states that tickets are available at the gate, but they recommend pre-purchasing to avoid disappointment.

      I am not sure what the said disappointment is, but my guess is that they recommend this for quicker entry and not having to wait in line – that or there may capacity limits they have to abide by.

      When buying tickets online, you can select what times you wish for the rider wristband to be valid (if you are looking to do that), so it’s likely there is capacity limits on the rides if they are trying to spread people throughout the day.

      Hope this helps.
