EMIRATES MELBOURNE CUP TOUR
Since 2003, the Emirates Melbourne Cup Tour has provided rural, regional and metropolitan communities across Australia and New Zealand a chance to experience the magic of the iconic $200,000 Emirates Melbourne Cup trophy.
Over the past 14 years, the 18-carat gold Emirates Melbourne Cup has traveled more than 456,000 kilometers, visiting over 377 towns and cities and engaging hundreds of thousands of people.
Each year, the Tour celebrates the heroes and stories intrinsically linked to the Victoria Racing Club’s 156-year old Melbourne Cup race and its contribution to the nation's historical and cultural heritage. The trophy visits various destinations in an effort to unite communities by engaging councils, schools, hospitals, aged-care and racing groups in events to raise funds for local causes.
Living up to its status as the ‘People’s Cup’, the 2017 Emirates Melbourne Cup Tour will once again engage in many community events, including street parades, civic receptions, charity dinners, community events and cocktail parties. Play video to find out more.
