Following the great success of The Park in 2016, the fun and frivolity of this family friendly area will be open to all guests at the 2017 Melbourne Cup Carnival.

This year, the Park will celebrate turning one in in fine form, boasting a huge entertainment program, fantastic fashion and a culinary adventure with fine fare from Melbourne’s hottest food institutions.

Gather your friends together and head to the Pony Bar, a quality destination for relaxation and indulgence serving Mumm champagne and the Schweppes Flemington Fling with a premium view of the main stage.

The fun doesn’t stop there though: a second stage is set to surprise and delight this year. The rotunda will host acoustic sets, bands, fortune-tellers, magical performances, and more through the Carnival, making it a must-see destination to visit! 

Families will take priority one on Emirates Stakes Day with an extended offering from last year with free fun activities for racegoers of all ages, while during Carnival visitors to The Park can enjoy entertainment at the Rotunda and kids’ activities at The Arcade.

Located on the hill, adjacent to the train station The Park is FREE for all Melbourne Cup Carnival ticket holders.
