The countdown to the Cairns Amateurs 2023

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

It’s that time of year, starting to warm up and where else would you rather be in September than beautiful Cairns.

A picturesque race course where it’s as much about the fashion for the fillies as it is about the punt for the colts (and gelding’s). Two great days out Friday and Saturday to make an action packed weekend of it.

Here are a couple of the most popular options each year.
