The Melbourne Cup stops not only Melbourne but also the rest of Australia. But it is in Melbourne where the race is run that so many events and things are happening to excite the senses! Just as the gorgeous backdrop of the Maribyrnong River gives depth to Flemington the Yarra River in Melbourne is abuzz as a centre of activity during Melbourne Cup Weekend.
It is Spring time in Melbourne for the first Tuesday in November and fashion, fillies and colts are key talking points as well as what will you be doing before, during and after the big horse races. Yes... it's all about a horse race, but with so much going on it's easy to forget it's not just one big party! The night before is Cup Eve with lots of great parties at venues and then of course if you are not at the course there are some many options for Melbourne Cup Lunch at super restaurants and venues all over Melbourne. Finally there are the after party options to dance the night away.
We have compiled some great ideas for your Melbourne Cup Day! We hope you back a winner!
