By Luna Park Sydney Pty Ltd, 22 September, 2016



Spring has officially sprung, and that means that the countdown to the Melbourne Cup is on. The race that stops a nation is undoubtedly one of Australia’s most prestigious sporting events, and Luna Park is proud to be hosting its annual Melbourne Cup Luncheon once more.

With the Park’s breathtaking views and iconic surrounds, there’s no better place to frock up and get in on the action come November 1. Following an incredibly successful 2015 event, Luna Park Venues has moved its Melbourne Cup luncheon from Crystal Palace to The Big Top, more than doubling the available space.

Kicking off at midday, attendees will be treated to an incredible three course meal from Luna Park Venues’ award-winning kitchen. The menu will include crispy Peking duck rolls with sweet and sour cucumber, and watermelon and shallot salad, sour dough herb-crumbed chicken with pan-fried pesto gnocchi and roast heirloom tomatoes, along with a wide array of desserts. The Silver Beverage Package will also showcase a selection of wine, beer and non-alcoholic drinks throughout the luncheon.

Of course, the main event of the luncheon is the actual race. Live betting facilities, the Melbourne Cup Calcutta and the famous Fashions on the Field will all be a part of the big day, along with sweepstakes, raffles, lucky door prizes and much more. Akmal Saleh of “I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!” will also be on hand for a laugh or three, while MC Gary Eck will keep proceedings running smooth.

This year will see the event partner with Ronald McDonald House, an independent children’s charity organisation, dedicated to improving the quality of life for seriously ill children and their families.
