The Melbourne Cup is held at the Flemington Racecourse with the event attracting over 100,000 visitors. It is televised to an audience of over 700 million across the world.
Melbourne Cup Day is Australia’s most celebrated horse racing event.
It is an annual public holiday in the state of Victoria and is observed nationwide on the first Tuesday of November.
Most race meetings are held under blue skies but the Melbourne weather in November is notorious for surprising us with sometimes "4 seasons in one day" so be prepared.
Check the local weather forecast and never be too reliant on the 7 day forecast predictions. They are not all that reliable.
The Melbourne Cup Horse Race Day At Flemington
During the Melbourne weather in November the days are starting to warm up, though not so warm as to make hiking uncomfortable.
The Grampians make for an excellent place to do so and if it is just a short trip out into the countryside that you want to do with the family on a picnic outing then why not take a trip out to the Werribee area.
Maybe try your hand at a little fresh water fishing out at Werribee Gorge.

Drive on out to the Yarra Valley wine growing areas and sample some of Australia's beautiful wine and cheeses. While you are there drop into the Healesville Sanctuary and if you have time the Hedgend Maze.
Both great outings for the family to enjoy during this beautiful Melbourne Australia weather.
