Melbourne Cup 2018 at Barangaroo

Looking for somewhere to celebrate Australia’s biggest race day this year and experience everything Melbourne Cup is famous for - champagne, fashion, entertainment and racing? You’ll be glad to hear Cup Day Festival is back – and you’re invited!
After last year’s success, we’ve partnered with the Victoria Racing Club and official Champagne sponsor G.H.Mumm to bring all the fun, frivolity and action of the Lexus Melbourne Cup (minus the horses) to Barangaroo’s waterfront!

Kicking off at 12PM on Tuesday 6 November, our program will showcase 9 hours of live entertainment, a curated menu of delicious grab-n-go food-truck fare, race-inspired cocktails, champagne and beer gardens, and all the live action from the track on the big screen! There‘s even an on-site betting facility if you’re keen for a punt. And, yes, it’s a free event.

Keen to be a part of it? Join us in the vibrant public festival area on the waterfront or book one of the special Lexus Melbourne Cup Day packages at our restaurants and bars.

You can also get race-day-ready with the help of our fashion boutiques and pampering services - so round up your crew, start shortlisting your favourite fascinators (or pocket squares), and make a day of it with us!
