Royal Melbourne Show 2014

The Royal Melbourne Show is what we all live for as kids when it comes to school holidays. I can remember looking forward to the September school holidays as we always used to go as a family and enjoy a day out with a lot of exercise - walking around = cardio and holding arms full of showbags = weights and not to mention having to sweat off all those kilos when you go on all those thrilling rides!

For me as a kid it was all about the showbags, the live entertainment, the animals and the rides but as I got older it's now finding all those foodie stalls, speciality stores and just the atmosphere. I love being able to go to The Royal Melbourne Show and discover new businesses and brands that I have never heard, seen or tasted off before.

The Royal Melbourne Show is a great thing for all ages. There is something for everyone to enjoy their - walk into the HQ of the reality TV show Masterchef, watch competitive wood chopping, feed the baby animals, experience live music from some well known artists, create arts and craft pieces and the list goes on.

Each day holds a variety of different attractions to entice you and have a hard time trying to decide which day you should go - just like me!
