Coral Sands races into Spring with the Cairns Amateurs!

Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to start preparing for this year’s Cairns Amateur Racing Carnival!

Running over four days from Thursday 11th September – 14th September at Cannon Park racecourse, the affectionately named Cairns Amateurs is one of the nation’s premier racing carnivals, and a great reason to visit tropical North Queensland.

Only a short drive from Coral Sands Beachfront resort, the carnival attracts guests from around the country with high calibre racing and social events. The Far North Queensland Amateur Turf Club Committee has worked hard to ensure the carnival is suitable for everyone, with petting zoos for the kid’s right through to the Cairns Amateur Ball and Fashions on the Field for the adults.

A truly entertaining event, the Cairns Amateur Racing Carnival promises to highlight the best tropical North Queensland has to offer over the beautiful Spring Season. Tickets start at $30 for one day general admission.

So don that tux, crown that fascinator and book your tickets to one of the hottest events of the year. As always, Coral Sands is excited to welcome various participants and spectators. Check out our apartments and offers for more information.
