A place for learning
When you think of kids at the Show, you picture mouths gaping in awe and giggling at a strange smell or texture. These are the faces of kids enjoying learning about animals and agriculture at the Show.
The Junior Farm Hands Activity book is the perfect guide for kids on their quest for knowledge at the Show. The hunt for information takes them to eight different locations to pat a pig, watch a cow being milked, wash a chook, and more.
The food farm is a hub for learning at the Show for parents and kids alike. Through a colourful collection of interactive exhibitions and sculptures, the farm sets out to answer the question: where does my food come from? Highlights include a bakery where you can watch cooks prepare pastries behind a glass window.
Aspiring TV and radio stars will love the ABC interactive trailer at the edge of The Park. You can seize the chance to watch yourself on TV, or put on your best voice for a radio show, and then watch and listen to your performance at home, online.
For those kids who are contemplating running away to join the circus, you can get prepared at the Ashton Circus’s skills workshops at The Park. Here you’ll be able to test your juggling skills and learn some sleight of hand.
And at the end of the day, brave parents can set their own challenge by testing kids’ budgeting skills at the Showbag Pavilion.
The Show is a world of wonder for many and provides the perfect place for learning something new.
