Cairns Amateurs

For four days in early September, the entire city of Cairns stops to celebrate the Cairns Amateurs Racing Carnival. The event began in 1959 as a small race meet, over the years it grew so steadily that today it is known as one of Australia's premier fun racing events. With race goers flocking to Cairns for the event from southern states and nearby towns, Cairns population swells by a few thousand over the fun filled weekend.
