2019 Melbourne Cup Carnival – Travel Packages & Cruises
The most lucrative two-mile (3.2km) handicap race in the world, the Melbourne Cup, otherwise referred to as “The Race That Stops a Nation™”, is without a doubt one of the world’s most prestigious and iconic sporting events! Each year over 300,000 race goers from all over Australia and the globe enter the world renowned gates of Flemington Racecourse dressed to the nines to experience the glitz, glamour, drama, and excitement of the biggest and best four days of horse racing in Australia (indeed, the world!). There are not many sporting events in Australia and the world that can warrant having their own public holiday. Patrons come to not only witness some of the finest horse racing on the planet, have a ‘punt’ and partake in The Cup festivities, but also to soak in the atmosphere and festivities that are unlike anything else in the world.
