Get hand on with agricultural experiences and endless opportunities to get up close to thousands of animals! Pat, feed and cuddle lambs, goats, chooks, pigs, ducklings and more to create memories that will last a lifetime.

Enjoy fun and interactive shows featuring fascinating, intelligent farm animals, watch your farmyard favourites roam in paddocks as they would at home, or watch the stars of the Show compete for the ultimate prize, a Royal Melbourne Show blue ribbon. 

Learn about and try your hand at shearing a sheep or milking a cow and pat or brush a pig or chook. Scavenge in the dirt for buried spuds, carrots and more in the veggie patch, turn wheat into flour or make your own pasta necklace to take home with you as a souvenir from your day at the Show.
