Cairns Amateurs 2013

Posted in Local Events @ Mar 27th 2013 3:04pm - By Cairns City Apartments

Book your accommodation early to avoid dissapointment for their year's Amateurs racing carnival! 

The Cairns Amateurs Racing Carnival is four days of fun, fashion, glamour, food and entertainment built around two days of horse racing in Cairns in early September each year. 

What began as a small meeting in 1959, designed to bring city and country together, has expanded over the years to become one of Australia's premier spring horse racing carnivals. Operated by the Far North Queensland Amateur Turf Club Inc., their event has become widely, and affectionately, known as "The Cairns Amateurs".

55 years on, the Cairns Amateurs is complemented by a host of social activities, some formal and some very informal including a number of Members-only and corporate functions as well as events and areas for the general public on both race days.
