Melbourne Cup Day
Tuesday 6 November 2012


It's great to be at the races on Cup Day, but you don't need to travel south for the race that stops the nation, head to Rosehill Gardens to enjoy great racing and the lively trackside atmosphere. 
Take part in the free Cup Super Sweep and you could take home a slice of the massive $25,000 prize pool. Click here to find out more.
In addition to 9 local races the Southern Hemisphere's largest super screen will broadcast all the action from Flemington. Plus, the trackside Zolf Hair & Beauty Bar will also treat ladies to complimentary hair and makeup touch-ups.
With plenty of hospitality options available, all you need to do is decide what suits you best. For an unforgettable day of racing and dining the Past the Post, Melbourne Cup Luncheon is a top choice or for a value packed three course lunch you can't go past the Ascot Club. For those seeking a relaxed trackside atmosphere, the popular Pavilion Green is for you at just $65pp.
You can also pre-purchase your $20 General Admission ticket now at Ticketek to avoid the queues at the gates. If you are after a ticket bundle with some serious value you can't go past our Super Saver ticket  where you spend $30 to get $70 worth of value!
