It's Easter and that means it's time for the Sydney Royal Easter Show.
I never went to the Show that often as a kid (once with the folks, and once with primary school as I recall) but there is something irresistibly nostalgic about the place, even if it doesn't come cheaply.
More often than not, it's a chance for city slickers to appreciate Australia's proud agricultural heritage, even if they do wrinkle their noses at the smell as they step gingerly over the flattened cow pats.
So first up, it was the animals. Who knew bacon could look so cute?
Piggies under the sun lamp
Dangling feet on the giant swings
Milking cows with a milk pump
Milk receival vessel
Pony and young rider
(we were impressed with the horses' braided manes)
Next up: the food, including the delicious scones from the CWA tea room.
The Sydney Royal Easter Show runs from April 5-18, 2007 at the Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park.
