Imagine the Race that Stops the Nation

Imagine the Race that Stops the Nation

We can’t attend the actual running of the Melbourne Cup but we can experience the next best thing. We will take you on an exclusive Rotary express train (and back) to Flemington Racecourse where the Melbourne Cup is run in November every year. On arrival a couple of glorious Living Legends of Racing (past Melbourne Cup winners) will grace us for selfies after which you can be photographed with a genuine 1.65 kg, 18-carat gold Melbourne Cup trophy as presented since 1914 and valued at over $250,000. 

You will be seated amongst friends old and new where you can enjoy superlative Victorian cuisine prepared with fresh Victorian produce, served with Premium Treasury Wines, all while  enjoying the fabulous view of the night sky across Melbourne. 

There will be great entertainment, with the thrill of the race through enactment with a “phantom race call” and footage of prior races, as well as the opportunity to meet racing celebrities.

You will make new friends and most importantly get the “feel” of the excitement that the great horse race generates in Melbourne and across the nation - and internationally each year.

This is your opportunity to dress up as if you were attending the Melbourne Cup so don’t forget the fashion. Melbourne Cup day is so much more than the race - it is about food and fashion – so wear your best and dress to impress! There will be prizes for those who stand-out!  

This is possibly the closest you will come to experiencing a Melbourne Cup!! Take this opportunity so you can tell your friends what you know about the race that stops a nation!

Cost of event is AUD$180.00

Transport to and from the venue is provided by a free Rotary exclusive express train service (you never know who you might meet on the train or at the station……).
