Everyone wants to be a winner on Melbourne Cup Day. Here are a few handy tips to make sure that you enjoy the race that stops the nation on the first Tuesday in November.

1. Pick Your Event

Don’t take a punt on a random event. When it comes to rushing a decision on where to go on Cup Day, you’re a chance to end up backing a nag. Optus Stadium’s Melbourne Cup party is the place to be. With Fashions Over the Field, premium beverages, food cooked by award-winning chefs and the Day’s races on the super screens it’s a short-priced favourite for best Melbourne Cup party in Perth.


2. Dress to Impress

Girls: Fascinator? Check. Frock? Check.
Guys: Suit? Sorted. Sunnies? Sorted.
Make sure you’re looking your best as there are prizes up for grabs at Optus Stadium’s Melbourne Cup Party for those that enter the Fashions Over The Field competition.


3. Get Your Bets On

We mentioned taking a punt earlier and what’s better than picking the winner in Australia’s biggest race? Make sure to get in early. TAB facilities are on-site in the Sports Lounge at Optus Stadium so you can place any last-minute bets. As always, know your limits and gamble responsibly. 

4. Enjoy the Day

Melbourne Cup Day is a great chance to relax. Forget work and everything else going on in the world, just enjoy a fun day out with friends. With incredible food and drinks included in the five-hour package and a day full of entertainment designed just for you, there’s nothing for you to stress about. Just frock up, rock up and enjoy the day.
