Each year, the Emirates Melbourne Cup Tour provides rural, regional and metropolitan communities across Australia and New Zealand with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the Emirates Melbourne Cup firsthand.
The annual Tour celebrates the heroes and stories intrinsically linked to the Melbourne Cup and its contribution to Australia’s historical and cultural heritage before returning to Flemington Racecourse for the ‘race that stops a nation™’ on the first Tuesday in November.
Since the Tour began in 2003, it has travelled more than 456,000 kilometres engaging tens of thousands of people.
In 2016 the $175,000 trophy toured 34 destinations across Australia and New Zealand in an effort to unite communities by engaging schools, councils, hospitals, aged-care facilities and racing clubs in events to raise funds for local causes.
