Everyone needs to experience a fabulous time at Flemington race course. The rose garden displays are magnificent and the atmosphere and ambience incredible.

A real experience on Australia's biggest race day. Huge crowds which made life difficult with all the rain and everyone crowded in under cover. Great when the sun game out. Food and drink were pretty expensive for not good quality. These seems standard for all...More
