Flemington Racecourse

Flemington Racecourse, one of the most beautiful racetracks in the world, is the setting for Australia's most famous horse race, the Melbourne Cup. Flemington is renowned for its Spring racing carnivals, which is arguably the best racing festival of its type in the world.

Four race meetings are held over an eight-day period, including the melbourne Cup, Victoria Derby, AJ McKinnon Stakes and the Victoria Oaks.

Flemington is also renowned for its fabulous roses, which line the mounting enclosure and are in full bloom at the running of the race. One of the interesting features of the racetrack is the running of races down the "straight six", which refers to races run on a straight 1200 metre section of track that joins the course proper.
