    Ok if you're local but I definately wouldn't make an interstate trip for it. I spent about 15 mins there.

    I miss the 3 day Frog and Reptile expo we used to have at Castle Hill. That used to be awesome, I could spend a few hours there easily, and return for another day. Now it's merged with the Easter Show.....sorry but not interested.

    $70 each, they were the biggest of the lot. The smaller ones were $50. Hopes high they turn out like the parents

    I was hoping to see a few of the shows and talks, but a cranky 3yr old changed all my plans!

    I went and it was ok. One thing they definitely need sorted by next year is the shuttle bus. They needed to have a second bus during peak times. When we got there 2 grandparents about 60 years old and their grandkids had been forced to stand in the direct sun for 30 minutes waiting for the bus to come. There was no shelter, no water and no staff there.

    agreed, i was told to park at the council chambers and get the bus from there, bus didn't go from the council chambers though :evil: i ended up walking both ways and beat the bus both times. i was a little disapointed with the expo as well, didnt seem to be much there.
