The Spring Racing Carnival is a big part of Australia’s culture. The fashion, the flair, and the fun – what’s not to love! We are so excited for those of you attending our spring racing events. Melba Restaurant is hosting race day lunches on Oaks Day and Melbourne Cup presented by media personality Gorgi Coghlan.

Racing enthusiasts will be watching the live action from Flemington on our plasma screens. Gorgi will be scouting the room for the best dressed and Fem Belling will serenade you while you sip on your sparkling wine.
