The BEST Places To Celebrate Melbourne Cup In Sydney

One thing has really got my knickers in a knot this year. It’s the fact that Melbourne get the day off to celebrate the Melbourne Cup - and everyone else has to go to work, like suckers.

The most infuriating part? Speaking on behalf of Sydneysiders, we have the potential to celebrate just as big as Melburnians, maybe even bigger.

The one thing I won’t be settling for is a quick bet on my iPhone, a newspaper office sweep and a 20-minute break to catch the big race - the Melbourne Cup deserves a much grander celebration.

So I’ve sussed out three no-fail options for Sydneysiders who want to get their giddy, up…

McGrath Estate Agents Melbourne Cup at Royal Randwick


Enjoy the race that stops the nation with the excitement and entertainment at Royal Randwick’s McGrath Estate Agents Melbourne Cup Race Day.

You can feel like you’re right in the thick of it at Flemington with the super screen, whilst enjoying epic entertainment and food throughout the day, including goodies from Knafeh Bakery!

The Bucket List marquee is the place to be, with guest DJs performing throughout the day. Visit for your tickets.

Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel


Watsons Bay With more than 10 screens broadcasting The Cup at Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel - and food that’ll make your eyes burst, it’s a no-brainer.
