Once you arrive at this prime trackside viewing lounge, you won't want to leave.

An odds-on Melbourne Cup Day favourite, you’ll never miss a moment of the day’s entertainment with floor-to-ceiling glass frontages bringing exceptional views of the action directly to your table. 

A fantastic shared precinct for business networking, seats are limited and this lounge will sell out.

 

And if you’re looking for a little more detail, you can simply revert to your table’s flat screen TV to watch the racing up close.

The menu for the day is specially designed by award-winning Executive Chef Steve Barton who relies on the bounty of seasonal Kiwi produce, often incorporating produce grown sustainably onsite.

Package includes:
  • Delicious buffet lunch designed by award-winning chefs and prepared using fresh, locally-sourced ingredients with dessert and cheeseboard to complement

  • A drink on arrival

  • Pre-allocated, reserved seat (tables of 8) in the comfort of an air-conditioned room with uninterrupted views of the racecourse
