    Make the most of the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival with Fraser's Spring Racing Offer

    Springtime is perhaps the best time to visit Melbourne with both the AFL Grand Final and the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival taking over the city. With many of Melbourne's numerous racing tracks coming to life throughout September, October and November, whether you choose to visit the home of Australian horse racing at Flemington Race Course or spend a day at Caulfield or Moonee Ponds, there's an incredible wealth of racing events to enjoy over the next three months.

    Fraser Place Melbourne's luxury serviced apartments make for a dreamy spot to call home if you're staying just for the weekend or looking for something longer term. The hotel is also surrounded by some of Melbourne's best dining and cultural destinations, so you won't miss out on anything during your stay in Melbourne. Plus, Fraser Place Melbourne also has some special springtime offers that'll make the choice even easier as you have the chance to get great value for your money.

    Australia's Most Action-Packed Racing Calendar

    For the busiest period for the racing industry throughout the year, the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival brings together Australia's most prized mares and stallions, while a collection of world-class racehorses also make the journey from overseas to try and claim a share of the massive prize money up for grabs.

    The first major race day on the calendar is the Makybe Dive Stakes on Saturday, September 14. Named after the legendary Australian thoroughbred that won three consecutive Melbourne Cups, there's $750,000 on offer. Saturday, October 19 sees the Caulfield Racecourse come alive with the second-largest race on the spring carnival calendar, as the Caulfield Cup boasts a prize pool of $5 million and is considered one of the world's greatest horseraces. With celebrities and athletes turning out for the big day, it's a great chance to soak up Melbourne's outstanding racing atmosphere. 

    However, the Melbourne Cup Carnival held at Flemington Racecourse throughout November is the major draw of the year. Featuring Victoria Derby Day, Oaks Day, Stakes Day – and the biggest day of them all – the Melbourne Cup, this series of events truly encapsulates what the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival is all about. Combining remarkable sporting moments with food, entertainment and fashion, Flemington Racecourse is where you want to spend your time this spring.

    World-class fashion and entertainment

    Over the years, the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival has grown into something much more than just a horseracing event. With the warm sun shining down, part of the fun is looking the part as Melbourne's best-dressed turn out in their thousands. As punters look to follow the dress codes and respect the traditions of each race day, there are still plenty of opportunities to showcase some of the latest trends and create an outfit that's truly unique. Whether you're decked out in a tailored shirt and suit or a flowing dress, the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival is your chance to look your best.

    Meanwhile, virtually every race at the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival will be accompanied by incredible live entertainment. But it's the Melbourne Cup that will have the liveliest performance of them all, with Taylor Swift flying into town for her only public Australian appearance following the release of her latest album. Throughout the event's huge cultural program, Swift will also be joined by a host of renowned Australian and international musicians, providing guests with some awesome off-track entertainment.
