September 2009 - The Royal Melbourne Show
Generally we try to avoid going to the Royal Melbourne Show during the School Holidays and try to visit on opening day as it is the quietest time to visit, but we went on Monday and the place wasn’t as busy as I was expecting it would be.
We generally stick to the arts and crafts, animals, exhibitions etc and try and avoid the show bags and rides. But Caitlin did talk me into going on the roller coaster with her and I have never seen a face who looked more terrified than hers did whilst riding on it. We also stocked up on hats at the hat stall again this year and now we all have bush hats.
September 2007- The Royal Melbourne Show
This is our 4th visit to the Royal Melbourne Show and this year was the usual good fun.
With significant work being carried out to the showgrounds over the last couple of years and this year the layout changing for the better, we didn’t feel like we were walking from one end of the showgrounds to the other. Now with the new layout all the commercial aspects are placed together and the things we go for, being the animals and free pavilions are all together.
I also can’t stress how much better it is to visit on opening day, there just isn’t anyone there and queuing and crowds are non existent which makes for a stress free pleasant day.
Meg would have been more than happy to spend the entire day in the animal nursery playing with the animals; she at one stage was engrossed patting a rooster which was sitting on her lap for 15 minutes.
