Before you know it that nation-stopping race will be upon us and - if you are lucky enough to get the afternoon off work - you’ll be looking for somewhere to celebrate.
When celebrating Melbourne Cup day in Newcastle your venue of choice will, of course, have champagne flowing, gourmet catering and an atmosphere as fun as a Flemington racecourse marquee.
This year at The Clarendon Hotel, our Melbourne Cup punters will be treated to a 3hr drink package and 2hrs of delicious canapes from The Courtyard Brasserie. Guests will enjoy the all the races on the big screen and live entertainment from Darren Fewins following the race.
Those that get into the spirit of the day and dress up in their finest race day outfits will be rewarded with special prizes -- plus we’ll be running sweeps and lucky door competitions.
