Spring Racing culminates with the race that stops the nation! Head to Heritage-Listed Eagle Farm Racecourse and lap up an atmosphere like nowhere else in Brisbane.
Queensland’s home of racing is set to spring to life on Canadian Club Melbourne Cup Day with the Cup shown LIVE on the biggest screen in the Southern Hemisphere (44m long!!), supported by all of the interstate action and a full local programme on track.
The final Billy J Boutique Fashions on the Field Competition of the season will see Brisbane’s most stylish hit the catwalk to nab the best dressed title on one of the biggest racedays of the year! Explore Spring in The Plaza with the all new interactive Redbank Pimp Your Prosecco experience, a pop-up Chandon S Courtyard, the ultimate Canadian Club Zone, a selection of pop-up restaurants, plus sunset on The Society Rooftop from 4pm.

For the foodies, why not book in to the Chandon Bubbles & Blooms Deck featuring a specially-curated menu from Celebrity Chef Matt Sinclair. The Sum Yung Guys’ founder and MasterChef alumni is the Official Food Ambassador for the Carnival and brings Asian-inspired flare to the menu.
Home-grown Brissy hero and international chart-topper, Conrad Sewell will be flying home for this exclusive show after the last! Head to the main stage to sing along to your favourite hits like Taste The Feeling, Hold Me Up and Healing Hands. What a way to cap off the spring season!
Brisbane Racing Club Members are treated to complimentary beverage tastings, Best Dressed Member prizing and live entertainment in the Members’ Reserve.
With a variety of tickets and packages to suit all budgets, including air-conditioned spaces and breezy marquees for comfort, there is something for everyone.
In previous years, Melbourne Cup Day has been a 18+ event. In 2019, we look forward to welcoming children to Melbourne Cup provided that they are accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times. Children are free to attend.
On Cup Day, there’s nowhere quite like Eagle Farm to embrace the excitement.
