A real family affair, Christmas night is always one to remember at Novotel Cairns Oasis Resort. Savour a bottomless seafood feast featuring local fresh prawns and oysters as well as bottomless festive hot and cold platters brought to the table, seasonal salads and decadent desserts.
First held on the 27th of October 1962, however back then it was known as the Babinda Sugar Harvest Festival and was presented by the Bellenden Kerr Junior Farmers. Initially the street procession was held at 7.30pm and the Sugar Princess was crowned at 9pm in the Memorial Hall. Entrants in the Sugar Princess quest came from Tully to Mossman and everywhere in between. Babinda’s own Joan Arnold (nee Dickson) claimed the title of the very first Sugar Princess. The day after the Festival an afternoon of water sports was held at the Russell River by the Russell River Water Sports Club.
