Emirates Melbourne Cup Tour

Since 2003, the Emirates Melbourne Cup Tour has provided rural, regional and metropolitan communities across Australia and New Zealand a chance to experience the magic of the iconic trophy.

Over the past 11 years, the 18-carat gold Emirates Melbourne Cup has travelled more than 345,000 kilometres, visiting 270 towns and cities and engaging tens of thousands of people.

What happens on the Tour?

Each year, the Tour celebrates the heroes and stories intrinsically linked to the Victoria Racing Club’s 153-year old Melbourne Cup and its contribution to the nation's social, sporting and racing culture. It visits various destinations in an effort to unite communities by engaging councils, schools, hospitals, aged-care and racing groups in events to raise funds for local causes.

Living up to its status as the ‘People’s Cup’, the 2014 Emirates Melbourne Cup Tour will once again engage in many community events, including street parades, civic receptions, charity dinners, community barbeques and cocktail parties.
