Spring Racing Fever

The Emirates Melbourne Cup – it’s unique, it’s fun – it’s the race that stops not only all of Australia, but half of New Zealand, too.

Flemington track in Melbourne is the home of the Melbourne Cup Carnival, but there’s a lot more to this event than just the racing.

From fashion shows and competitions, to gala dinners and club lunches, there is something for every palette and every budget.

Once you’re in Melbourne, you can get to Flemington by train, tram, bus, taxi, ferry, car or helicopter.

Tickets must be pre-purchased, even for general admission, so make sure you get in fast – there are often over 100,000 in attendance at Flemington on the big day!
