What We Do

Melbourne Royal® is a not-for-profit organisation, supported and guided by a number of advisory groups and committees, whose members are selected by the Melbourne Royal® Board.

The members of these groups are experts in their industry and help to shape and develop a vibrant calendar of events and competitions, including food and drink award programs, on-farm events, agricultural competitions and Victoria’s largest and most iconic annual community event, the Melbourne Royal® Show.

This iconic Melbourne based event is part of Melbourne’s culture and heritage and Melbourne Royal® is proud to be custodians to pass this experience on to future generations.

Melbourne Royal® benefits the local community by promoting and celebrating Victorian agricultural produce and producers, through world-class events and programs that connect industry with consumer. 

Each of these events recognise and celebrate excellence and act as a unique platform for industry promotion and education. 

Furthermore, in a joint venture, Melbourne Royal® is responsible for the management of Melbourne Showgrounds, where the organisation's office is located.

Melbourne Royal® aims to attract and retain best people, improving governance and volunteer engagement, providing learning opportunities and inspiring leadership.
