Know More about this tour

Cruise the Yarra river to Flemington aboard a decorated cruiser. Youll be welcomed aboard with a glass of Australian sparkling wine, and during the cruise enjoy morning and afternoon tea, a gourmet buffet lunch and unlimited drinks. Study the form guide on the sun deck or just relax and admire the views. The fun doesn't stop when the races have finished, as the party continues with entertainment by our onboard DJ as you travel back to the Melbourne City Marina.


Flemington is the oldest and best-known racecourse in Australia with races held every year since 1840. The highlight of the racing calendar is the Spring Racing Carnival which features the main events of Derby Day, Oaks Day, Melbourne Cup and Stakes Day. Flowers, especially roses are an important part of the week's racing at Flemington, with each of the major race days having their own official flower.

Derby Day - Victoria Derby Day kicks off the Spring Racing Carnival in style. Traditionally black and white are worn on this day by women and morning suits by men. The flower of the day is a blue Corn Flower.

Melbourne Cup - It’s Melbourne Cup and time for the Race that stops a Nation! See fortunes won and lost and history made on the first Tuesday of November every year. Join in the fun and soak up the atmosphere as the entire nation stops to watch the Race at 3.00pm. The flower of the day is a Yellow Rose.

Oaks Day - Also known as ladies day, Oaks Day is more famous for “fashions on the field” than the horse racing! This is the time to dress to impress with large hats and fascinators. The flower of the day is a Pink rose.
