Introduction

The BBX Royal Hobart Show, which is hosted by the Royal Agricultural Society of Tasmania, is an event that celebrates all things Australian.  From our country heritage to the charms of our bustling city and from top level competition to the latest in entertainment, the show offers something for everyone.

For many years school students from the city and country have been visiting the Show to soak up the sights, sounds and smells of Rural Australia.  The Show offers a unique hands-on learning experience for people of all age groups who can take advantage of the many educational experiences.  This year is the 193rd anniversary of the first Hobart Show which was held on the lawns near the current Parliament House in 1822.

Thanks to the Tasmanian Premier the entry fee for students attending as part of a school group has been maintained at $3.50 per student.  RAST is also offering every teacher who books a class group before 23 September 2016 a free ticket to our BBX Royal Hobart Wine Show Public Tasting in November, valued at $30.

Please read this 2016 Teachers Guide and then feel free to contact us with any questions you have about bringing your school group to the Show.
