From October 19 through to Melbourne Cup on 5 November, Eagle Farm Racecourse is the place to be. Presented by Lexus, four racing events will take the turf for hours of frivolity, fun, and glamour.

Don’t miss St Rita’s College Caulfield Cup Ladies’ Day on October 19. Gather your gal pals and pop a bottle in the picturesque grounds of heritage-listed Eagle Farm Racecourse as you take in two of Australia’s most prestigious races on the biggest screen in the Southern Hemisphere! Dress to impress in pretty pastels for the first Billy J Boutique Fashions on the Field Competition of spring with thousands of dollars in prizes up for grabs. When you’re not watching the races, you’ll be plenty busy with the all-new interactive Redbank Pimp Your Prosecco experience at Spring in The Plaza, a pop-up Chandon S Courtyard, the Spring Hamper Co. & Thalassa Restaurants, plus sunset on The Society Rooftop from 4pm. For the primest of views, perch yourself at the Red Bull Bar or Furphy Deck out on the Public Lawn, and don’t forget to back a winner by supporting MND & ME Foundation with the 50:50 Charity Raffle. Foodies can book in to the Chandon Bubbles & Blooms Deck featuring a specially-curated menu from Celebrity Chef Matt Sinclair, and fans of old school bangers can groove to Spice Power – the Spice Girls cover band flying in from Melbourne to play on the main stage!
