Set in the Thomsons Bay Marquee overlooking Thomson Bay guests will be treated to canapes, fresh oysters and Mumm Champagne to start. Our nearby sweepstake lounge will cover multiple races throughout the afternoon. Live music will kick off on the marquee lawn from 1pm till 4pm. With prizes for Best Dressed, Best Hat and Best Dance moves – this is the only place to celebrate the 2017 Melbourne Cup Event. Please note Ferry Ticket not included in ticket price.
