There are different categories of showbags including confectionery, toys & novelty and health, fashion and lifestyle. Some of the themed showbags include The Avengers, Barbie, Disney Princess, Pixar and Hello Kitty.
We love how you can filter them by age. You can choose Adults, Kids, Teens or Family. Or you can filter them by category and choose Confectionery, Lifestyle, Toys & Novelty or Costume and Dress Up.

With so many showbags to choose from this year at the 2022 Royal Easter Show, it’s bound to be a difficult choice. Plan ahead so you don’t waste time choosing a showbag.
You can either purchase your showbags when you arrive at the show or at the end. The Showbag Pavillion is located on Riverine Avenue close to the Olympic Park Railway Station.
Stash them in a locker so that you don’t have to walk around all day with them if you buy them early. All-day locker hire is $12 for Regular 90L capacity or $20 for Jumbo 180L capacity. Or do, what some families do, and buy them as you leave the Easter Show. It’s a good way to get the kids to leave without a tantrum.
