Had a fabulous time today at Melbourne Cup Luncheon, I attended the cocktail party upstairs in the air conditioned function room. The service was great, friendly staff and the catering was awesome a great variety to choose from and very tasty. Well done Cairns Jockey Club and Coral Coast Catering.

Maybe it was the champagne or maybe it was the winning but the food in the winning post bar was amaaaaazing! We went home very happy.

Without a doubt the place to be yesterday was at the Cairns Cup, Cannon Park was just magnificent with new and exciting venues catering to every race goer! I truly can’t wait for next year where our Cup Carnival will prove itself to again to be the premier racing event in North Queensland.
