Flemington: Home To The Melbourne Cup

Flemington is one of Melbourne’s most visited suburbs, and we all know that it’s worth the trip! But if you’re not familiar with the area, here’s why it’s such a sought after destination. Firstly, Flemington is an inner-city suburb, sitting just 4km northwest of the CBD. That means it’s right in the action! But, even more notably, Flemington hosts the Melbourne Cup every year, and it has done since 1861. With such an iconic event on offer, it’s no wonder people flock to Flemington from all over the world!
