It was glamorous! The media were invited to attend the official unveiling of Flemington’s lavish Birdcage Enclosure today. This iconic precinct is the playground of celebrities and society high-flyers during the Melbourne Cup Carnival. Invitations are always the hottest tickets in town.
I was there to capture all the fashionable action, let’s take a look at how it all went down…
The Melbourne Cup Carnival begins on Saturday 29 October with AAMI Victoria Derby Day, and continues with Emirates Melbourne Cup Day on Tuesday 1 November, Crown Oaks Day on Thursday 3 November and concludes with Emirates Stakes Day on Saturday 5 November.
Tickets are still available for purchase from Flinders Street, Southern Cross and North Melbourne train stations or racegoers can buy online from Ticketek.
