Melbourne Cup is almost here again, so if you haven’t already organised what you and your work team or family are going to do on Tuesday 1st of November 2011, then it’s time to start making plans for the race that stops a nation!
While the majority of racing enthusiasts like ourselves won’t get the chance to witness the live Melbourne Cup race at Flemington Racecourse this year, there are always plenty of events taking place around Mudgee where you can get dressed up and enjoy a champagne lunch with friends.
There are wineries, restaurants and pubs galore around Mudgee that are holding special functions especially for Melbourne Cup, but because it’s not far away, you’ll need to do a ring around to check availability because our guess is that a number of places will already be fully booked for the afternoon.
If you’re keen for something a little lower key, you can always get together with friends, gather around the TV and have your own little celebration in the comfort of yours or someone elses living room.
Either way we’re sure most Mudgee race enthusiasts, and even those that only take an interest for one day of the year, will be enjoying the atmosphere that the Melbourne Cup brings out around Mudgee. If you have any hot tips, be sure to let us know too!
