Tour Details

After years of client suggestions, we’re finally visiting the Cairns Amateurs Racing Carnival, three days of fun, fashion, glamour, food and entertainment built around two days of horse racing in Cairns in early September each year.

What began as a small amateur 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. The Far North Queensland Amateur Turf Club has become widely, and affectionately, known as “THE CAIRNS AMATEURS.” The beautiful mild September climate entices large crowds of locals as well as interstate visitors. 

We’ll also visit the Great Barrier Reef  Experience and enjoy the adventure of snorkelling, diving and sailing on the Great Barrier Reef with Passions of Paradise. The 25-metre high-performance catamaran sails from Cairns to two unique outer reef locations, where you can dive and snorkel with turtles, colourful fish and see an amazing variety of corals.
