It’s coming up to Spring Racing Carnival time and all our pubs are gearing up for the special day – the day to watch the race that stops the nation. Fashion, fun, and fascinators are far more important than actually working regular office hours!

The  Melbourne Cup is Australia’s most famous horse race held over a distance of 3200 metres at Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne. Held on the first Tuesday of November each year the ‘race that stops a nation’ is an opportunity to try and back a winner and claim bragging rights over your friends, work mates and family.

It’s carnival time and yes, it’s Melbourne Cup party time!

Still undecided on the location of your boozy lunch for race day? or where to have your Melbourne cup party?

Whether you want to go all out with no expense spared, or would rather celebrate on a budget, look no further, we have all options covered.
