Cairns Amateurs - Sept

Updated: 26-Jul-2016

The Cairns Amateurs is one of Australia’s premier Spring Racing Carnivals. Cairns Amateurs is a Melbourne Cup style event in Far North style. 

We have immaculately dressed ladies and gentlemen vying for to be awarded the 'Fashion on the Field' winners, bookies, jockeys, street-style entertainers, jazz bands, socializing celebrities, wannabees and horse racing.  It's a brilliant weekend when old locals and new all converge on the Cannon Park Race Course. 

The ball on Friday night is a serious fashion event with men in Black Tie and all ladies in full length gowns.  There is always an excellent live band, delicious meal and all under the tropical starry night (we hope)..

Come and join us for fashion, socializing and celebrities – under the tropical skies of Far North Queensland.   Horse tips and fashion tips go hand in hand at Cairns premier social event, the 55th Cairns Amateur Racing Carnival at Cannon Park Race Course. This is the biggest racing meet in Queensland outside Brisbane with tens of thousands of locals and visitors. Ladies Day is on the Friday and Cup Day on the Saturday.

The mild September climate entices large crowds of locals as well as interstate visitors.

There are a number of different areas for visitors including track-side, the members area, the corporate tents and other marquee's by arrangement.
