Melbourne Cup is only but two weeks away, so if you're still scratching around for ways to watch the big race, we've done some research.

Here's just some suggestions on what to do on the big day, Tuesday 5th November.

All In At Ascot

Ascot is the only place in Perth you can enjoy Melbourne Cup day alongside live horse racing.

This year, Ascot has the brand new Trackside Club, the best place in Perth to kick your heels up and party the day away. It will have a distinct 80s vibe, with fist-pumping tunes, arcade games, 80s throwbacks and fashion. It will be located in the Leger Lawn Marquee and extend along the deck and trackside lawn so guests can enjoy front-row racing action.

If you want something a little more upscale, there are still tickets available to The Treasury, a premium marquee luncheon function. Or you can book into the fine-dining Flying Colours Restaurant or delicious buffet dining in The Terrace Restaurant.

A General Admission ticket will get you in to experience all the buzz and atmosphere of Melbourne Cup day, with plenty of food trucks, heaps of dining options, pup-up bars and live entertainment.

There’s plenty of venues to explore, including the new Byron Bay Beer Garden, Kirin Pavilion Bar & Deck, Gin Parlour, Mumm Chandelier Bar, Stone Motherless Bar, EqWine Bar and the new Ice Creamery.
