Cairns Show Association president Ian Allen said the event was run by an independent third party.

"The event there was not run by the Cairns Show Association," he said.

"It was hired by an independent group called Showfest. We leased the ground out to them."

The ABC has contacted the Showfest organiser for comment.

Mr Allen said as president he could close the event down but was instructed by police that would not be necessary at this stage.

"But the [Hangover] ride cannot operate, nor the ride next door, until they do their investigation," he said.

He said his thoughts were with the woman and her family.

"Just to have anyone having an accident at any event, not whether it's the Cairns Show or anything but you just don't want to have anything like that," he said.

"I'd just like to send out my sympathy to the family there … that this tragic accident has happened."

Queensland Police and Workplace Health and Safety are investigating.
