Spring Racing Carniaval

I've got family coming to Melbourne in November and they want to do the races. I've never been so not sure which is the best race to go to and how to get tickets, any advice? Also sister wants to know what she should wear...

Great choice - the Spring Racing carnival is a lot of fun! Here is the official website which tells you all of the dates and how to get tickets: http://www.flemington.com.au/melbourne-cup-carnival

There is also a Melbourne Cup Carnival Guide which tells you everything you need to know (including what to wear!) and can provide tips for first time racegoers: http://www.flemington.com.au/melbourne-cup-carnival/melbourne-cup-carnival-guide

All of the Melbourne Cup Carnival races are good to go to - although it gets rather expensive to do them all! Stakes Day is good fun, and then the Melbourne Cup on the Public Holiday is always a great atmosphere. Tell your sister to go all out - a pretty dress, heels and a fascinator are the standard female attire.

Thanks for the tips - we've decided to go to the Melbourne Cup!

Take the week off and go to all of them! Oaks Day is usually my favourite, it's a bit quieter as it's on a non-Public Holiday.
