The Cairns Show Association would like to invite you to become a Member. If you have not contemplated this before then please consider the many benefits you will experience by being boy_with_cowassociated with this wonderful not-for profit community organisation.


The first Show presented by the Cairns Agricultural, Pastoral and Mining Association took place in 1891 and they have been run almost continually since that date. The Cairns Show Association's charter is to coordinate and stage the traditional annual Show, showcasing the very best of Cairns and its surrounds, highlighting businesses, industries and our diverse cultural strengths along with the traditional Agricultural, Pastoral and Mining heritage. This is achieved through the help of our large Membership, volunteer committee, show competitors and our outstanding sponsors.

The Cairns Show Association is a privately funded, Membership based, not-for- profit organisation.
