This newsreel footage shows the diverse range of attractions at the Sydney Royal Easter Show in 1933. There is no narration; instead, ambient noise from the show fills the soundtrack.

We see glimpses of the often bizarre sideshow entertainers as well as favourites like the giant merry-go-round, Ferris wheel and other rides.

The first Sydney Royal Easter Show was held in 1823 by the newly formed Agricultural Society of New South Wales. In 1881 land was provided for the Royal Agricultural Society at Moore Park where the show was held for 116 years before relocating to a new showground within the Sydney Olympic Park precinct at Homebush Bay.
