The Cairns Jockey Club is proud to have provided over 100 years of Australia’s Hottest Racing.

For the past 105 years, Cannon Park has been the home of the Cairns Jockey Club and has continued its commitment to local racing making it one of the top things to do in Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef.

Originally owned by the Cannon family, the land where the CJC now sits was donated, with the first race meeting held in 1911. Records show that the first Cairns Cup took place in the early 1900’s.

Our progressive racing strategy, combined with our dynamic events throughout the year is consistently increasing our on-course patronage and viewing audience providing even more value to our sponsors and spectators and making Cairns a must visit for Horse Racing in Australia.

Cannon Park boasts crowds of over 12,000 per day during the peak carnival times and has many function rooms and hospitality areas.
