Clifford Park’s annual Melbourne Cup event is an absolute winner with glamour, galore and fantastic local non-tab racing. Guests adore spending the day at the picturesque Toowoomba course for the Race That Stops The Nation and this year will be no exception. There are plenty of super stylish options for guests on the day, including the ever popular The Event Group VIP Trackside Dining inside the stunning Clive Berghofer Grande Atrium.

This function, which seats 300 plus guests, has sold out the last few years. Guests will enjoy the air conditioned comfort inside the glass walled space, together with reserved table seating, three-course meal, race book for each guest, live music, Funny Money Bookmaker and Tote.

A new addition to this year’s Melbourne Cup offerings is the Canape Affair inside Clifford Park’s newly renovated Bernborough Room. The package features a four-hour gourmet canape package, private bar and views so close to the winning post that you can almost touch the runners. Guests also can enjoy the JJ Atkins Terrace function, featuring a two-course seated meal, private bar and floor-to-ceiling views of the Winning Post.

The Fashions On The Field competition is a highlight of the day, thanks to Laser Clinics Australia. The competition is sure to be fierce, with lovely ladies and dapper gents from across the region vying for a swag of fantastic prizes. This year’s categories include Best Dressed Ladies Racewear, Headwear and Best Dressed Men’s Racewear. Horse racing will take centre with five local non- TAB races.

Guests will not miss a minute of the action from Flemington with the Wippells Autos Big Screen. On Australia’s biggest day in horse racing, enjoy it live and local at Clifford Park. Be there for the fun, food and fashions — and maybe a flutter too.
