CAIRNS AMATEURS CARNIVAL

What a great time we shared, see you next year!

This is Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef at its fashionable best. The North’s most anticipated social and sporting event, the Cairns Amateurs Cup sponsored by Great Northern Brewing Co. is the feature of the Carnival, and a must-do social spectacle to witness live.

While racing is at the core of the Cairns Amateurs Carnival, the event offers an exciting combination of glamour, fashion, entertainment and fun. With a reputation for fashion with a tropical twist, great racing and unmatched scale and splendor, this is the pinnacle of the north’s social calendar.

Next event September 2022

Can you feel your heart beating with the excitement of the Cairns Amateurs Carnival.

Three days of fashion, fun, festivities, friends – and of course the chance for a flutter. With live screenings of the race, fashions of the field and an atmosphere that will carry on well after the last race.
