As the horses thunder past – you are there.

The Home Straight Enclosure sits at the very heart of a Melbourne Cup Carnival race at Flemington — and you’ll want to be part of it.

Stand on the infield of the world-famous track and take in the beauty of the moment as the horses thunder past just metres in front of you.
