Immerse yourself in the exhilarating action of ‘the race that stops a nation’™ as one of the world’s greatest races is broadcast live from Flemington Racecourse.
A thrilling headline act will hit the central stage and keep the party going into the night.
Step into the Mumm Champagne Terrace and savour a glass of Mumm Grand Cordon Champagne. Enjoy the day’s racing action and entertainment within the luxurious harbourside Terrace with Mumm Champagne bars and lounge area.
If you’d prefer a laid back vibe, head to the Craft Beer Garden with acoustic tunes playing between key race broadcasts.
This year, together with our event producers Our Friends Electric & bar managers Wats On, we are committed to environmental sustainability and will be introducing a re-useable cup scheme to the event that will eliminate ALL single use plastics from the event.
