Sydney Royal Easter Show Road Closures & Community Information

08 Mar 2023

The Sydney Royal Easter Show returns to Sydney Olympic Park from Thursday 6 April to Monday 17 April 2023. As Australia's largest ticketed event, it truly is a celebration of Australian culture.

Over this 12 day period, the Park is expected to be extremely busy, with the annual event attracting near 800,000 visitors. During this time, there will also be other major events, including concerts, NRL matches, netball games and more - all happening within the precinct.

To support these events, a series of road closures and changes to parklands will be implemented from Thursday 23 March until Wednesday 26 April 2023. These will assist with pedestrian safety, set up and staging of the events as well as managing the traffic flow in and around the Park, particularly during peak times.
