The Melbourne cup has been held since 1861 and is the richest and most prestigious “two-mile” handicap in the world. With the lineup for the race yet to be officially confirmed, anticipation is brewing.

And aside from race day there is a multitude of activities and attractions to indulge in. Melbourne is a city for everyone with cutting edge arts and cultural exhibitions, chic fashion stores, amazing food from every culture, beautiful gardens, spectator sports and a rich historic heritage to discover.
