The most extensive regional agricultural exhibition in Australia has returned. Prepare for the 2023 Cairns Show, held at the Cairns Showgrounds from July 19 to 21.
The first Cairns Agricultural, Pastoral, and Mining Association show was in 1891. The Hall Show featured a wide range of exhibits at the Divisional Hall for one-day and two-night sessions. The outdoor segment's two-day schedule included cattle, pigs, poultry, and traditional horse activities.
Shows in such format ran until 1899 at the same sites. Now fast forward to 1954. The Cairns Showground hosted Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip during their brief visit to the city. Thousands of people gathered at the arena to see the Royal couple. After the Royals left, most residents stayed to participate in various programs involving schoolchildren to commemorate the occasion.
Indeed, the Cairns Show has a rich history and has a lot in store for you for the 132nd event. You'll find jaw-dropping performances, outstanding competition entries, educational displays, local company exhibitions, delectable food booths, animals of all shapes and sizes, and thrilling rides!
The Cairns Show is Australia's largest regional agricultural show, attracting roughly 70,000 attendees annually over three days. So plan your trip to Cairns and book a stay near the venue.
