Melbourne Cup 2018
November 6 @ 3:00 pm - 11:30 pm
The Melbourne Cup always approaches fast, with the 2018 edition commencing at 3pm, Tuesday 6th November. The race that stops a nation is more exciting than ever this year, with a number of celebrations taking place both inside and outside the racecourse. While the $6.2 million Emirates Melbourne Cup is the centrepiece of the Melbourne Cup Carnival, there are plenty of additional races and social events to keep everyone busy.
There are a total of ten races taking place throughout the day, with varying race distances and prize values on offer. While the 3200 metre Emirates Melbourne Cup is by far the most prestigious event on the Australian racing calendar, the entire Melbourne Cup day spectacle is organised as a complete and enthralling package.
