Your guide to Melbourne Cup celebrations in Newcastle this year

Looking for a new way to celebrate the cup in 2018?

They say it’s the race that stops the nation, so where will you celebrate such an occasion? We have some Newcastle ideas here.


Melbourne Cup at Babylon Newcastle

Celebrate Melbourne Cup in style at Babylon Newcastle. The event will run from 12:30 pm until 3:30 pm with a live jazz band, the race on the big screen and a best-dressed competition. DETAILS & BOOKINGS

Top Deck Cocktail Party at Merewether Surfhouse

Want to get beachside in your best frock? This party is singing your name. French bubbles, canapés + live entertainment. Oh, and a big screen for you to watch ‘the race’. DETAILS & BOOKINGS

Melbourne Cup Special at Foghorn Brewhouse

Two things have got us excited here – wonderfully superb beer (and the chance to drink it during the day!) + the promise that this “won’t be your average Melbourne Cup party”. DETAILS & BOOKINGS

Melbourne Cup Party at the Greenroof!

Giddy Up! Melbourne Cup is kicking off at the Greenroof again this year. They’ve got a good time in store whether you’re a full-blown Cup fan or just looking for some casual drinks and a bit of fun. DETAILS & BOOKINGS
