Cairns Showground
Places of Significance - Cairns Regional Council

Opened in 1931, the following year it was the site of an event known as the "Parramatta Park Riots". In 1932 local residents dislodged a group of itinerant people who had taken up residence in the grounds. Prior to 1931 the show had been held at the 4 mile (near Woree) and in North Cairns near the railway line.
