Aucklanders love a good excuse to get together and so this November, we’re gearing up for a one-of-a-kind Melbourne Cup Day party!
For the thousands that descend onto Ellerslie Racecourse for Melbourne Cup Day each year, they experience an event that is part party; part raceday.
We'll show the Melbourne Cup live on the super screen and we're also delivering you some live horse racing on home turf here at Ellerslie - something you won't get anywhere else in the city that day.
Add to that a fashion competition and our famous on-site after-party and you've got some very good reasons as to why you should come party with us on the first Tuesday in November.
Head to our website to get ticket details and find out where the perfect place for you oncourse is.
