What is a ShowLink ticket?

A ShowLink ticket is an entry pass to the Sydney Royal Easter Show which is valid for a single admission to the Show on any one day. There are two types of tickets for the Sydney Royal Easter Show:

1. A Print at Home ticket is ordered online and will be sent as an electronic file (PDF) to your email inbox. You must print the ticket on A4 paper from your own printer. All ShowLink tickets include same-day return public transport. There is no need to pre-select a date for Print at Home tickets as you can travel on any one day of the Show.

2. A ShowLink hard stock ticket is a physical ticket that will be posted to you. All ShowLink tickets include same-day return public transport on any one day of the Show.

Please note that tickets will not be available to collect, print or be delivered until early February 2015. A Christmas Gift Voucher will be available until 31/12/2014 which will be accessible from the confirmation email received after the sales transaction.

The payment processing fee includes (but is not limited to) credit and debit card fees and expenses, administration and associated infrastructure costs. The payment processing fee will be added to the ticket price. This payment processing fee does not apply when tickets are purchased by cash at outlets or box offices (subject to availability).

Handling Fee

Tickets purchased on the Site may be subject to a per-order handling fee. This covers the cost of operating an information service and internet site and the processing of ticket(s). Handling fees vary depending on the event and are agreed between the relevant event partner and Ticketmaster.

Delivery Fee

We offer our customers several convenient delivery options. The relevant delivery fee is charged per-order and depends on which delivery option/s are available and selected by you at checkout. Delivery options that normally attract delivery fees include Express Post, Registered Mail, international airmail and retail outlet pickup. The delivery options that attract delivery fees for an event and the applicable fee for each option, are displayed on the "Find Tickets" page for the event on the Site.

What tickets do I need to bring with me to the show?

Please ensure to print and bring all of the Print at Home ticket pages with you. You will also need to retain your ShowLink ticket for your return journey on public transport. Please note that your Print at Home tickets are sent as attachments (PDF) to your nominated email address and will display a unique barcode on each ticket. The email itself is not a valid ticket.

Are my tickets transferable?

Print at Home tickets and regular ShowLink hard stock tickets are transferable. There are no refunds available on any tickets once purchased.

What public transport is included in my ShowLink ticket?

All ShowLink tickets include travel by public transport to and from the Show on the day of first use for one day only. Valid on the train network bounded by Bomaderry (Nowra), Goulburn, Bathurst and Dungog stations, all Sydney metropolitan and outer metropolitan regular route bus services, Sydney Olympic Park major event buses, Sydney ferries (operated by Harbour City Ferries) and Light Rail services. A separate station access fee is payable for travel to and from the Domestic and International Airport stations - the fee is not included as part of this pass. For further travel information visit

Remember to keep your ticket safe for your return journey home as a valid ticket is required when travelling on public transport.

Travel from the International and Domestic Airports

A station access fee applies for travel to and from Domestic and International Airport stations.
