The 2018 Melbourne Cup is not far away and if you can’t make it to Melbourne get yourself on the Queensland Gold Coast for an unmissable celebration at the famous Gold Coast Turf Club. Moments away from our Gold Coast luxury apartments, the Gold Coast Turf Club in Surfers Paradise will be hosting a spectacular event on race day, featuring a big screen, live entertainment, mouthwatering food, and a mixture of drinks to get your hands on – make sure not to miss it.

The momentous Melbourne Cup is one of Australia’s biggest events each spring. Hailed as the richest and most prestigious horse-racing events in both Australia and New Zealand, the Melbourne Cup is a 2 mile, or 3,200 metre, horserace that sees the country’s elite Thoroughbreds gallop their way to the finish line. The Melbourne Cup dates back to 1861, and is now renowned for being the “race that stops the nation”. Over 100,000 people attend it each year at Melbourne’s Flemington Racecourse, and it’s famously celebrated all over the country.

The next best thing to being at the Melbourne Cup is to enjoy it on the beautiful Gold Coast! The Gold Coast’s very own Gold Coast Turf Club – the home of the Southport Racecourse – will be hosting a huge celebration for the Melbourne Cup, and the atmosphere is all set to be the best yet. Dress up in your best and enjoy watching the action on the big screen, as well as a full day of food, drinks, and live entertainment. Don’t miss it on November 6.
