Melbourne Cup Events In Perth 2022
It has been said many times before, but the saying does not become any less true as the years go by:
Melbourne Cup is the race that stops the nation!
Elegant dresses, fancy hats and somber suits flood the streets of Australia. Head to the race courses or hit the town to enjoy a day of socialising like no other. Perth race goers might be a bit far from the main action, but the city is nothing but vibrant on this day every year with a variety of different destinations to enjoy some food, drinks, laughs, and a healthy bet 😉
Here’s where to sip the smoothest champagne, taste the yummiest food and listen to the best tunes in Perth this Melbourne Cup Day 2022.
What better way to enjoy the races than from the Sky View Terrace at Optus Stadium with some stunning city views and a prosecco station.
Head to the stadium’s Sports Lounge for the most amazing party, featuring live racing on screens, a race day fashion runway, prize give-aways and endless music to keep the good vibes flowing. Added to the glitz and glam that is guaranteed for a day like this, are brunch and lunch canapés, TABtouch facilities and a welcome cocktail on arrival.
