Fillies, fun & fashion!
The Burke & Wills Hotel celebrates the race that stops the nation!
For a fuss-free afternoon of frivolity, join us at the Burke & Wills for Melbourne Cup this year, Tuesday 6th November. This iconic day in November is fast approaching, and is the perfect excuse to enjoy a special day out with friends and family.
The luxury Burke & Wills Hotel is the perfect location to enjoy the nation’s most iconic racing event. Forget the hassle of ticketed entry, or set-menu dining – guests can order from Zack’s restaurant menu. Enjoy anything, from Darling Downs Wagyu Rump to Crispy-skin Tasmanian Salmon. Be spoilt for choice, with the option to spend as little (or as much) this Melbourne Cup. Our restaurant menu is on offer from 11:30am, and can be viewed here.
Dress to impress!
What would Melbourne Cup be without the glamour? Guests are encouraged to adorn their favourite fascinators, dresses and stylish suits for their chance to win our best-dressed competition. Wear your finest race wear, and step into our newly refurbished Hotel & Restaurant.
Enjoy the thrill of Flemington broadcast live throughout the venue for your viewing pleasure. Sweeps are available throughout the day, so cheering on your favourite horse couldn’t be easier! Win or lose, you’ll be assured a good day out. With the option to stay for post-race drinks at our bar into the evening!
This year’s festivities celebrate flavour, fashion, fast fillies and fun – after all, isn’t that what Melbourne Cup is all about?
