Tour description provided by Viator

Join in the fun and action of the Melbourne’s Spring Racing Carnival with a Melbourne river cruise to Flemington Racecourse. Enjoy all the excitement of The Derby, Oaks Day and the infamous Melbourne Cup, the race that stops a nation!

Cruise the Yarra River to Flemington aboard a decorated cruiser. You’ll be welcomed aboard with a glass of Australian sparkling wine, and during the cruise enjoy morning and afternoon tea, a gourmet buffet lunch and unlimited drinks. Study the form guide on the sun deck or just relax and admire the views.
