    The highlight of the Carnival will be the 2013 Melbourne Cup which takes place on November 6 and racing fans will be counting down to the world famous race.

    The Melbourne Cup is the most important sporting and cultural festival in Australia and on the first Tuesday of November every year the nation grinds to a halt for a spellbinding renewal of ‘the race that stops a nation.’

    If onlookers from overseas are wondering where the two mile showpiece gets its nickname from then they should be made aware that the Melbourne Cup is the most watched five minutes of television Down Under, year in and year out without fail.

    Also famously known as the ‘Loving Cup,’ the Melbourne showpiece is the highlight of an exhilarating Festival that lasts for fifty days and attracts more spectactors than any other meeting in the world – the Victoria Spring Racing Carnival. 

    A combination of the world’s finest thoroughbreds, mixed with some of the globe’s leading fashion and entertainment ideas make the Carnival the most enchanting social event of the year and the unrivalled party atmosphere means you do not need to be part of the racing fraternity to become engulfed in the action.
