Melbourne Cup and Spring Racing Carnival Accommodation

 

The Spring Racing Carnival is the highlight of the horse racing calender in Australia and it is held every year at the Flemington Racecourse throughout the first week of November. The pinnacle of the horse racing season is the world famous Melbourne Cup, which is always held on the first Tuesday in November and therefore sets the dates for the rest of the carnival. As well as the Melbourne Cup the Spring Racing Carnival features a number of other major group 1 horse races including the Victoria Derby, Crown Oaks and Emirate Stakes.
