Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival Hotels

The Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival is undoubtebly the highlight of the Australian horse-racing calender. It brings out the very best of Australian and International thoroughbreds for 50 days of world-class racing action. The whole event has a carnival like atmosphere which brings the city of Melburne to life from September to early November each year.

Events commence mid September with major carnivals held in Melbourne and Country Victorian venues. Caulfield plays host to Caulfield Guineas Day, Thousand Guineas Day and Caulfield Cup Day. Head to Moonee Valley for WS Cox Plate Day. Regional Carnivals include Cranbourne Cup Day, Seymour Cup Day, Geelong Cup Day, Bendigo Cup Day and Ballarat Cup Day.

The jewel in the crown of the Spring Racing Carnival is the Melbourne Cup - the race that stops a nation! Melbourne Cup Day is always held on the first tuesday in November. Other major events held at Flemington include Victoria Derby Day, Oaks Crown Day and Emirates Stakes Day.

There are hotels near each of the suburban race tracks, or stay in Melbourne City Hotels which offer easy access to venues by public transport - train or trams.
