Get ready to see a side of Flemington that few get to experience. This year, The Birdcage will boast more and better spaces and attractions. New bars, new surprising touches and little delights as you stroll from one end to the other, plus new spaces curated with our members in mind (and most require no additional ticket to buy).
The car parks will heave with good-time vibes. Choose from The Nursery, The Rails or The Domain, where a Moroccan-inspired party awaits. However you choose to celebrate, 2019 is definitely the year to experience the magic of The Birdcage and Car Parks for yourself.
A fresh new Bird Bath Bar takes flight.
Be there when the Bird Bath Bar takes off for its second year. Relocated to an all-new spot within The Birdcage, you will have a bird’s eye view of the passing A-list crowd. You can count on style, glamour and sophistication being in ample supply from first drinks to last call.
We’ve curated this year’s space just for you but you can still count on the same refreshing mix of high-end Champagnes, craft beers and cocktails, plus all kinds of yummy treats.
Play all day as The Playpen returns in 2019.
You don’t have to be a kid to have fun in The Playpen! Located in the heart of The Nursery, this exhilarating space is sure to bring out your inner child.
Treat yourself to the pampering services on offer all day and fire up your Instagram to capture the fun activities all around you. Your fellow racegoers will be moving to the beat when KIIS FM starts spinning the tunes with the perfect party playlist from early in the day onwards.
Step into another world.
In one of the most exclusive precincts for members at Flemington, in 2019 the beauty of a freshly-scented, exotic Marrakech-style garden beckons, situated in its prime elevated position next to The Club Stand.
Surround yourself in a vibrant Moroccan-tile aesthetic adorned with fragrant and colourful floral creations. An authentically-styled Shisha lounge will add to the colour on the day. To tempt your tastebuds, prepare yourself for Middle-Eastern inspired sweet treats and coffees.
Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult unless otherwise stated or at a VRC sanctioned event, where parents or guardians have given written permission for their children to be in the care of VRC employed staff. Children of all ages allowed in all Car Park areas (including generally as a pedestrian in the Birdcage) unless it is a specifically advertised or separately ticketed event (such as 1 Oliver St). Children under 12 do not require a ticket at all to enter the car park areas and those 12 and over require Junior Member ticketing or any other annual guest or relevant daily pedestrian pass.
