*** Update 17/10/2021 ***

As of the announcement made today we will be permitted to host a further 20 people inside on Cup Day and will release tickets to this effect.
Further to this, given the information shared today about vaccination rates we are confident that Victoria will reach the 80% double vaccination milestone before Melbourne Cup Day which will result in further capacity for our venue.
With this being said we have decided to offer further tickets in the various areas with the following terms:
80% Vaccination Hurdle Terms
The following tickets that have been made available on the 17/10/2021 are subject to Victoria reaching the 80% double vaccination hurdle.
  • Lawn Marquee
  • Lawn Outside
  • Terrace
We encourage you to purchase these tickets however if Victoria does not reach the 80% double vaccination hurdle prior to Cup Day we will not have the capacity for you and we will refund your ticket purchase less the Eventbrite fees which are non-refundable.
Please note that inside tickets do not fall under the 80% Vaccination Hurdle terms.

Areas

Lawn - Marquee
Our premier event space adjacent to the Yarra with an epic view of the Melbourne CBD with fake grass and a chilled out vibe.
Plus, on the lawn we have a purpose built mega screen to watch all the action live and loud. Plus, there is a 15mx10m marquee to keep you warm and dry incase of some dodgy weather.
Lawn - Outside
In the same area as the above but outside of the marquee. We've covered all the tables with umbrealls but we need to say that if there is some full on weather it might be slightly un-comfortable. But it's spring and we're confident it'll be all good!
Terrace
Our terrace boasts a great view of the Melbourne CBD, a view of the giant screen and TVs. It's warm and weatherproof in almost all scenarios also!
Inside
As the name suggests this is inside seating. We have 2 big screen TVs and all the races will be live and loud.
