Melbourne Cup Day - Here's The Late Mail

Melbourne Cup Day - Here's The Late Mail

We’ve got the late mail on your Melbourne Cup Day winners.

The race that stops a nation is a great excuse for an unofficial long weekend and we’ve found the fun away from Flemington this Tuesday.

On the Bellarine they’re dishing up food, drinks and heaps of fun for all the colts and fillies:

Horses Four Courses at Flying Brick Cider House – sparkling on arrival, four-courses of deliciousness, races on the big screen, sweeps and fashions on the field. They’ll also supply bus transfers between the Cider House and Geelong.

Oakdene is celebrating Melbourne Cup with a carnival atmosphere in the gardens and the excitement from Flemington on screen. Dress to impress in your finest racewear to be in the running for the amazing prize of a degustation dinner, accommodation, breakfast and a wine tasting for three couples! #winning

The Melbourne Cup Culinary Carnival at Jack Rabbit Vineyard combines race day excitement with premium food, wine and stunning bay views across the vineyard. Plus, there’s a complimentary shuttle bus to and from Geelong.

In Geelong, punters looking for good value will find it at the Central Geelong Sidewalk Sales. Businesses across the city take their wares out onto the footpath for a huge shopping day. Check out the form guide for inside tips on where to find the best value. There’ll also be a pamper zone with free hairdos and mini mani pedis, a big screen to catch the races and special food zones.

Don’t be a mug punter, quit horsing around! Plan your day now. It’s odds on you’ll be a winner. And if you’re a stayer, check out our accommodation options.
