Dress to the nines and be there LIVE at Fleimington Racecourse for the opening race, Derby Day, and of course, the Melbourne Cup! The most lucrative two-mile (3.2km) handicap race in the world, the Lexus Melbourne Cup, otherwise referred to as “The Race That Stops a Nation", is without a doubt one of the world’s most prestigious and iconic horse racing events!
Each year over 300,000 race goers from all over Australia and the world enter the world-renowned gates of Flemington Racecourse dressed to the nines to experience the glitz, glamour, drama, and excitement of the biggest and best four days of horse racing in Australia (if not the world!). After all, there aren’t many sporting events in the world that can warrant having their own public holiday!
Patrons attend the Melbourne Cup Carnival to not only witness some of the finest horse racing on the planet, have a ‘punt’ and partake in The Cup festivities; but also to soak in the atmosphere and festivities that are unlike anything else in the world.
Away from the glitz and glamour of Flemington Racecourse, the city of Melbourne is absolutely buzzing during the Cup Carnival week! Explore Melbourne’s iconic laneways full of quirky bars, cafés, art galleries and shops and immerse yourself in the city’s renowned coffee and foodie culture. What’s more, the Yarra Valley region which contains some of the world’s finest wineries is only a little more than an hour drive from the CBD!
