The IGA Perth Royal Show is back for 8 days of royally good value – Saturday 23 to Saturday 30 September.

We are yearly regulars to the IGA Perth Royal Show, our first stop was to collect our IGA Follow the Yellow Brick Road showbag as it includes lots of free activities, discounts, and competitions. On Tuesday 26 September the IGA Follow the Yellow Brick Road showbag is half price.

Creatures Great and Small Pavilion, this was definitely a highlight – emus, camels, alpacas, goats, rabbits, pigs and chicks. One of the lovely ladies looking after the baby chicks pulled one out and brought it to show my two boys outside the pen in their pram – which I thought was really lovely!

There is so much to see and do in one day, we didn’t make it to the Dog Pavilion, Cat Pavilion, Poultry Pavilion or Cattle Lane Walk.

Another great free activity is the Police Exhibition – little miss loved jumping on a police motorbike for a photo, there is a police car also available for a photo opportunity. Daily Constable Care shows at 11am, 12pm, 2pm and 3pm.

If you are a foodie definitely head to the Taste WA tent where you’ll find award-winning WA foods, a bar, cooking demonstrations and a free Channel 9 Family Food Fight photo booth – which of course my daughter could not resist!

Adrenaline junky or not Sideshow Alley is pretty impressive, prices range from $6 to $20. After some Bumper Cars and taking my oldest on the Splash Down we headed to Kiddie Land near Gate 10 to take advantage of the 2 for 1 kids rides, tickets must be purchased between 3pm – 4pm, tickets are then valid until 7pm – for $30 we had 10 rides.

You can’t go to the Perth Royal Show without trying your luck at the carnival games.

Showbags are of course very popular, prices range from $4 to $125. We tried to make our visit to the show fun for the kids but budget friendly so both older children were given a ‘showbag budget’ before we arrived at the show.

Again making our visit budget friendly we opted to bring our own food and drinks for the day – saying that we couldn’t resist buying some donuts! There are lots of food options available around the show.

I noticed many outlets had EFTPOS, there are also lots of ATMs at different locations around the show.
