Cairns Amateurs Racing Carnival 2013

The Cairns Amateurs Racing Carnival is four days of Fun, Fashion, and Racing 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.

55 years on, the Cairns Amateurs is now 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.

The Mercedes Fashion Passport, held at the Cairns Cruise Liner Terminal will be held on the 22nd of June. This is a high end fashion event and is marketed as a prelude to the Carnival, a must see for the racing fashionistas.

Emerging designers and boutiques are invited to express their interest in participating in the 2013 Fashion Passport. Please register here.

The beautiful mild September climate entices large crowds of locals as well as interstate visitors. Our Carnival Events for the 2013 Cairns Amateurs are from Thursday the 6th to Sunday the 9th of September.
