Feel the excitement as Cairns light up with entertainment, glitz, and fashion in this year’s Cairns Amateurs Racing Carnival.
The first carnival was held in 1959. Back then, the Committee which consisted of 10 people from outback station properties as well as local businessmen was only able to conduct six races daily. A few local businesses and regional branches of national companies participated and volunteered while some were approached by the Committee for support on the said carnival.
As years passed by, the Cairns Amateurs Racing Carnival grew and became Australia’s most prestigious horse racing event. To attract more people, the horse racing enthusiasts merged with high fashion making Cairns Amateurs Racing Carnival an event both ladies and gentlemen would enjoy.
At present, the Cairns Amateurs is listed in the National Calendar making it a must-attend event in September and drawing approximately 20,000 people from all over the country. This year, multi award winning carnival promises to bring the same fabulous events only bigger and better.
