Royal Agricultural Society of NSW

Since it was founded in 1822, the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW (RAS) has been an influential force in the direction and development of Australian agriculture through competitions, education and events.

The RAS has grown to become a diverse business incorporating the Sydney Royal Easter Show, Sydney Showground, Sydney Royal competitions, the RAS Foundation and the Australasian Animal Registry.

As a not-for-profit organisation, the RAS is committed to supporting agricultural development and rural communities in Australia by generating revenue through its businesses to plough back into agriculture.
