Cairns Show 2016

20-22 Jul

Cairns Show 2016


This year’s Cairns show is sure to be another crowd pleaser, with the Cairns show rated as being the largest and the best in Far North QLD. Experience Sideshow alley rides for the little ones as well as the teenagers and grownups. This is where the thrills and spills begin with squeals of delight, and for the brave hearted, squeals of terror, with new rides happening each year. There is a fireworks display each evening commencing at 9pm which is spectacular and an all-time favourite.

There are many attractions to view in the Main Arena, with  Entertainment from - V8 TRACKSKILL Holden vs Ford V8 Ute Challenge, everyone’s favourite – Show Jumping/Equestrian events, MK8 Fire Vehicle – see them fire the water cannon above the crowd, live Dance Performances/Music Extravaganza, Pole climbing and Woodchop along with the Tjapukai Aboriginal Dancers and the Grand Parades.

It is always a treat for young and old to visit the Famous Heritage Area where you can see the baby Farm animals to Pig Racing and Radical Reptiles. Steam Engines, Chainsaw Sculpting and Horse act. Plenty to satisfy all.  There are many Competition sections from Arts and Crafts to Home Economics, Horticulture, Scarecrows, Caged birds and Poultry, Livestock, Indigenous Arts and much, much more.

Food stalls galore, with the good old favourites – Dagwood dogs, fairy floss, hot chips, burgers, stuffed potatoes and much more.

Show bags are always a pleaser for the children from the Showbag Carousel or visit the stalls spread throughout the show grounds.

Of course there are also the extreme show rides for the teenagers and brave of heart,and side show alley for the little ones and grandma and grandpa to have a bit of fun. The food at the Cairns show is also a major drawcard with deep fried hot dogs dripping with tomatoe sauce, fairy floss, frozen slushies, hot chips, burgers, pies and lots more. The Cairns show makes children go heady and excited to be amongst the bustling crowd. 

Make sure you bring along plenty of money for side show alley and the scary rides and attractions that are on offer year after year at the Cairns show. The family will not be allowd to leave the showgrounds without at least two or three show bags if the children have their way that's for sure.

Open for 3 consecutive days, tickets are available at the the gate for single day entry, or if you purchase your tickets in advance and save.

The Cairns Show is held in mid July of each year. Cairns Accommodation is at a premium at this time so we suggest you book early to avoid disappointment.
