The ladies in Cairns know how to dress and over the past few years have made their mark outside of Queensland in the world of ‘Fashions on the Field’ so if you’re attending make sure you bring your ‘A’ game! A handy tip if you’re traveling from interstate would be to check the weather because its very warm in Cairns but remember tran-seasonal winter racewear is expected.

Sadly I don’t think i’ll be able to make it, but i’ll be sure to have my phone on me for updates as the day and competition progress.
