The Fun Never Ends around the Cairns Amateurs Carnival!

Posted on July 14, 2014 by

Partying at the Amateurs Ball, betting on the ‘gee gees’ and ‘strutting’ your fashion on the field during the Cairns Amateurs Carnival (12 & 13 September) is just the beginning of the great experiences this region has to offer!
Cairns Amateurs

 Picture yourself on a 32 metre luxury sailing catamaran (no, you haven’t won lotto.. but you will feel like you have!)  Ocean Spirit sailing to the Great Barrier Reef will show you the beauty of the magnificent Coral Sea and connect you to the unique reef environment.   A full day excursion with 4 hours on the reef and Michaelmas Cay is a relaxing way to discover the marine life and soak up the sun.  This great day tour includes a Marine Biologist on board presentation, snorkelling and instruction and its very own semi-submersible coral viewing tour with commentary.  sit on the magnificent deck and enjoy the delicious hot and cold buffet lunch, including seafood.
