Got your diary? Put a big red circle round the first Tuesday in November. This is the big one. Flemington may be hosting the main event, but the Yarra Valley is celebrating the Melbourne Cup in their own way: with the biggest harness meet in the southern hemisphere. It is still the race that stops the nation, except here you can actually find a decent picnic spot. The Melbourne Cup is the season’s ‘ultimate style day’, which means ladies tend to bring their couture A-Game.. and blokes, well, fish around for a pocket square. Fashions on the Field takes centre stage, along with a full race day program, on-stage music, and all the 3:00pm Flemington action streamed live on the big screen. It is Spring Carnival at fever pitch.
