5 reasons the Home Straight Enclosure is the best way to spend your day at the Melbourne Cup Carnival

#1 The Food

It’s delicious… and there’s plenty of it! Our caterers Atlantic Group take pride in creating a delicious and innovative menu each year. The staff are waiting on you from the moment you step into the marquee, until you walk back out at the end of your day.

#2 Trackside Viewing

The Home Straight Enclosure provides access to an exclusive trackside viewing area. Here, you will see the horses thundering past, just metres from the finish line. It is the most enjoyable and exciting way to watch the races!

#3 The Atmosphere

We don’t have the reputation for the most ‘fun’ enclosure on the track for no reason. With a live band daily, our guests are up dancing, singing & laughing and never want to leave once the day comes to an end!
