Cairns Weekend Home Show
Far North Queensland’s major caravan, home and lifestyle expo for 2021 will be staged at the Cairns Showgrounds supporting the Government’s call on Queenslanders to support local businesses and to ‘Holiday Here This Year’.
There has never been a better time to holiday in North Queensland with over 120 exhibitors showcasing the very latest in camper trailers, caravans, motorhomes, four-wheel drives and tourism destination information. This event has everything anyone could possibly need to plan and enjoy the amazing destinations in North Queensland.
There’s daily wildlife shows for the kids, come face to face with some of Australia’s most dangerous snakes!
Australia is home to the most toxic snakes in the world. Ranger Dan, from Hands on Wildlife, will be in the pit with taipans, brown snakes and death adders.
Learn about which snakes can be found in your region and how you can stay safe around them. You will also get the chance to touch, hold and have your photo with some of their friendlier lizards, pythons and crocodiles. Don’t miss these exciting Hands on Wildlife shows.
For the camp cook there’s also a daily cooking show.
Ron Wilson, aka “Kingbrown”, is one of Australia’s most experienced camp oven cooks. From an early age, he was practising the craft on the stations west of Bourke, where he was able to learn from the last of the old drovers and shearers cooks.
In later years, Ron travelled extensively cooking as a camp oven caterer and performing at shows and festivals with his cooking demonstrations.
Using his vintage Australian made ovens Kingbrown teaches people how to use the modern store-bought ovens to make simple but spectacular meals at his demonstrations.
The Cairns Expo is on at the Cairns Showgrounds this weekend from Friday to Sunday. For event information and to get your tickets go to www.CairnsExpo.com.au
