The main stage will also come to life from day to night with daily entertainment for families,

Teens and adults alike. There will be daily shows from Australia’s favourite blue heeler, Bluey, as well as SpongeBob SquarePants and Cocomelon. There will also be a daily Paramount+ Parade, featuring characters from Paw Patrol and Teenage Ninja Turtles, to name a few.

“We are very proud to present our biggest Melbourne Royal Show program and encourage
everyone to get in early to purchase tickets and start their countdown to the Show. We are
committed to providing incredible value for families across all facets of the Show. Never before can you do so much in one day, with just one ticket,” Brad Jenkins, Melbourne Royal CEO, said.

In 2023, Melbourne Royal (previously the Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria) celebrates 175 years since the organisation’s inception, marked by the first ever ploughing match in 1848. This milestone was the foundation for agricultural shows in Victoria, and evolved to become the Melbourne Royal Show which we know and love today.

Foodies will also have a plethora of choices to whet their appetite, with an enhanced food and beverage offering with 15 unique food precincts including Graze and Gourmet Pantry + Cellar and some of Melbourne’s hottest names in food including Mr Miyagi, Tokyo Lamington and Wonderbao. •
