It’s almost showtime.
It’s so close we can smell the nostalgic mix of fairy floss and fresh hay. I know you can’t wait to visit with the family, and the good news is your tickets will deliver all the fun of the fair – and then some.
The Perth Royal Show is the largest agricultural show in the west, that fills the Claremont Showground with animals, attractions, rides and exhibits. It's back again this year from 25 September to 2 October.
Perth’s biggest ticket is the best fun and great value. Heck, there's even a 25 per cent discount on all entry tickets, and an impressive 101 completely free things to see and do once you’re inside the gates.
Side note: Listen to Mamamia's podcast for parents, This Glorious Mess. Post continues below.
This year a family of four can go to the show for as little as $61.10. Amazing, right?
