New Zealand’s most Authentic Melbourne Cup Day Experience

25 October 2022

Forget the work sweepstake, lunch at the local pub or annual trip to the TAB, there’s one way and one way only to celebrate Melbourne Cup Day – by heading to the races!

Despite the ‘race that stops two nations’ taking place a mere 2600km from us Kiwis, we can still enjoy an afternoon of LIVE horse racing. In the 09? You’re in luck! The Grand Tour is heading to Pukekohe Park this Melbourne Cup Day (let’s hope you luck extends to when you’re on-course…). 

Rally the crew, sweet talk the boss into an early knock off and enjoy an afternoon of horse racing in our very own backyard. Come 5pm, turn your attention to the live coverage of the big race – the Lexus Melbourne Cup.

Enjoy an afternoon of LIVE horse racing at Pukekohe Park, Tuesday 1 November.

Take advantage of Pukekohe Park’s FREE general admission or get a little fancy sipping champagne in one of the two hospitality precincts on-course. Side note: Did you know that Pukekohe Park has free general admission all season?

Eat, drink, and get racy at New Zealand’s most authentic Melbourne Cup Day experience - Pukekohe Park, 1 November.
