Flemington Heritage Centre
Home of the Melbourne Cup since 1861, Flemington is one of Australia's most significant cultural and sporting venues. Each year more than 400,000 racegoers flock to Flemington for the fun and excitement that is unique to the Melbourne Cup Carnival.
Superbly positioned beside the Maribyrnong River with uninterrupted views of the city skyline, this National Heritage listed site also boasts the largest public rose garden in the Southern Hemisphere.
