The Emirates Melbourne Cup is a truly spectacular event and the focal point of the Melbourne Cup Carnival. While most of Australia stops to watch or listen to the race, there’s nothing like being there amongst the 100,000 plus crowd to experience this truly unique event. The excitement slowly builds to its 3pm fever pitch when everything at the track comes to a stop for 200 heart- pounding seconds. Each year, a new chapter is written, a new legend is made and a new dream comes true as the winning connections take Australia’s most famous sporting trophy.
