The Cairns Cup Celebrations
With every November comes the Melbourne Cup, and along with it an excited fever that crosses the nation. At Oak Tree Cairns it is no different.
Once again the residents at our Cairns village celebrated a fantastic Melbourne Cup Luncheon - and did it in style of course!
The food was top class with the ladies from the social club and volunteers working tirelessly to decorate the centre and prepare the menu.
Prizes were given out for Best Dressed Lady, Best Dressed Man, Funniest Hat, and Best Hat.
All was quiet when the race first started and then just seconds into it came cheers from the crowd as they watched with anticipation their chosen horses.
Great fun was had by all - it is alway such a well attended event and a real crowd pleaser.
