Wheels around the grounds
With the Sydney Royal Easter Show site covering a whopping 21,000 square metres, it’s no wonder there’s plenty of wheels around the grounds to help people get from A to B.
Popular this year has been the ergonomically designed shopping (aka granny trolley) – perfect for shoving your 15 showbags or gigantic bear that you’ve won at sideshow alley into.
But if you’ve got kids in your clan then a pram is the best plan. You only have to head to the Pram Parking at the Dairy Farmers Farmyard Nursery to see the line-up of Mercedes Benz’s of the baby world.
For the many staff and volunteers around the Show, to save wearing their boot soles thin, they zoom around the grounds at 10km/h on a golf cart.
The St John of God Paramedics have also got their transport down to a tee – they scoot around the site on a push bike, weaving through the crowds to get to an emergency or injury in the quickest possible time. Now that’s nifty.
For those that have to stick to the bland old method of walking – just think of the calories being burnt.
