2017 melbourne spring racing carnivalThe 2017 Melbourne spring racing carnival features 50 days of world-class horse racing action from September to November in Melbourne.

The Victoria Racing Club hosts the major racing carnival in Melbourne during the spring with the spectacular Melbourne Cup Carnival at Flemington.

Held over four days at Australia’s most famous racetrack, the city of Melbourne erupts into a carnival-like atmosphere for the onslaught of great racing ahead.

The Melbourne spring racing carnival culminates with the running of the Melbourne Cup (3200m) at Flemington Racecourse on the first Tuesday in November.

Crowds of over 350,000 race fans descend on Flemington during Melbourne Cup Week and the festivities grow bigger and bigger each year.
