It’s back and not to be missed! The Melbourne Cup returns in November and you can enjoy all of the action live on the Gold Coast with our central Surfers Paradise beach apartments.
Each year, the Melbourne Cup comes to life on the Gold Coast with numerous events to catch on raceday near our prime location in Surfers Paradise. It’s Australia’s most prestigious horse race and the perfect opportunity to dress up with sumptuous food to indulge in across a choice of first-rate Gold Coast venues.
Once again, the famous Aquis Park Gold Coast Turf Club will be hosting a huge Melbourne Cup event on raceday with all the live action on the racecourse big screen, world-class food and beverage packages and an atmosphere that’s as good as being at the Flemington Racecourse itself. Be all set for the big race with general admission or take your experience further with various luxury packages, which include live entertainment in the Events Centre and fine-dining courses in the Turf Club’s onsite restaurants, The Skyline and The Gallery.
Aquis Park Gold Coast Turf Club is just a short 10-minute drive from our location! Another top venue to watch this year’s Melbourne Cup is Southport Yacht Club - just north of Surfers Paradise near Main Beach - where there will be a seafood buffet, three-course grazing dishes, flowing beverages and a number of sweeps and raffles to take part in. Located on the marina waterfront, Southport Yacht Club guarantees a fantastic ambience on Melbourne Cup Raceday.
Alternatively, head to Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre in Broadbeach for its annual Melbourne Cup Lunch, offering four courses of exquisite food, champagne and dessert, evening onstage entertainment along with all live action on the big screen.
All Gold Coast Melbourne Cup events will take place on raceday November 5 - just make sure to dress your best and bring a group!
