Brisbane’s Most Iconic Venue Is Hosting An Extra Special Melbourne Cup Event

Five huge rooms of celebrations!

By Siobhan Taylor | 1st November 2018

In true Melbourne Cup style, Treasury Brisbane is hosting an extravagant and indulgent day of racing celebrations. With a spectacular Melbourne Cup package that includes a stunning fashion show in Queen’s Park and Moët & Chandon and canapés on arrival, Treasury Brisbane is set to delight guests with a day of non-stop festivities.

In a display unlike anything else we’ve heard of, Treasury Brisbane will be paying special consideration to the rich history of horseracing. As you sip on your drink, roam through the five individually themed rooms, each of which has been inspired by the world’s greatest racecourses.

Envisage the Kentucky Derby with Woodford Reserve Kentucky Bourbon and American-style slow-cooked foods, The Flemington Room complete with a Chandon sparkling bar, cheeses and antipasto, and The Aussie Picnic Races with a Furphy beer garden, roast chicken, barbequed meats and salads.

If that's not enough, discover The Royal Ascot Room with a Tanqueray and Pimm’s garden cocktail bar and high tea offerings. Last but not least, delight in the Prix de L’Arc de Triomphe Room of Chambord and Grey Goose cocktails with French desserts.

The fantastical display is set to ignite the imagination and delight the senses, all as you indulge in Moët & Chandon and Treasury Brisbane’s always-delicious canapés. With a generous 3.5-hour premium food and beverage waiting to be enjoyed, you’ll never be empty handed!

And of course, there will be Fashions on the Field, sweepstakes, live screenings of the race (courtesy of their Mega LED screen in the courtyard), and lucky door prizes. Top hats, tails and fascinators are strictly encouraged! As a special partnership with the Cerebral Palsy League, guests are encouraged to dig deep to support this worthy organisation.

If you’re enjoying the buzz and feel like kicking on, Treasury Brisbane will also be hosting an open-to-the-public after party at LiveWire Bar! With a free, live set by Australian rock icons The Black Sorrows and flowing drinks, this will be the ultimate way to set of the day. Make sure you gather all your friends and prepare for a good time!
