DH and I are planning our first trip to the Royal Easter Show in Sydney.
I'd love some info about where to stay, for how long, what to see, bring etc?
Is it kid friendly, pram or Ergo for DS2?
Can we bring drinks/snacks for DS1?
What should we see? What should we skip?
Anything you can share would be helpful.

What kind of accommodation do you want? How long ate you staying for?
Normally the Easter show has a good website so you can plan your day. Pram and baby carrier are fine. Pretty sure you can take your own food.

Stay at Hyde Park Inn on Elizabeth Street or Harbour View - Harbour View useally have a stay & see package for the show.
There is LOTS of walking to be done, so up to you if you carrier or pram, we pram.
Defiantly take food & drinks, food & drinks are VERY exxy.
Have a look on the website for what to see, your boys would enjoy paddle pop lion path.

I've got no idea about accommodation, because it's just a day trip for us, but everything the pps have said is good.
Triple Time is right, there's SO much walking to be done...I'd definitely go with the pram instead of the carrier.
Everything is so expensive though, so take whatever food and drink you'll need for the day if you can.
Very kid friendly, there's so much to see and do! You'll all have a blast

Is one day enough?
Are there any days to avoid or is it really busy every day?
Is it all outside? What if its wet?

The long weekend is generally busier and the kids day we try to to do before school holidays.
One day should be fine

We usually go on Good Friday, which is the busiest day, but we get there at 9:30 and leave by early afternoon and miss a lot of the crowd.

One day is plenty, there will be things that won't interest you. Most things are outside, if it's raining take rain coats.

one day is plenty, take whatever food and drinks you can as its crazy expensive and mostly fried fast food otherwise.
be smart and download a map and show timetable and take the time to plan your day beforehand.
if buying showbags do it on your way out to avoid lugging them around all day.
take gumboots and raincoats in case of rain.
definently stroller as lots of walking.
make sure your kids have your mobile number written on them in permanent marker just in case.
