THE BIRDCAGE

Z

The Birdcage Enclosure becomes the epicentre of style and glamour, as die hard fans of fashion and glamour converge to enjoy the very best that the Melbourne Cup Carnival has to offer.

Flemington’s first Birdcage was established in 1887, in a separate enclosure under the Elms and became the place to be seen for elegant racegoers – a quality that has endured as the Birdcage continues to become more glamorous year on year. 

Since the 1980's  the famous Birdcage Enclosure in the Members's Car Park has transformed into the favoured location for corporate and sponsors’ marquees to host elaborate and exclusive celebrations during the Melbourne Cup Carnival.
