COVID-safe celebrations around the city
Have you thought about celebrating the Melbourne Cup this year? Although we are living in a COVID-safe world at the moment, there are still events being held around the city to celebrate the race that stops the nation. These venues will provide a clean environment and maintain COVID guidelines - whilst also providing some glamour and some well-earned fun!

See below for a quick list of 4 venues who are putting on a Melbourne Cup lunch this year. Get in early to secure your ticket!

1/ Capitol Bar and Grill at QT Canberra will be hosting a Melbourne Cup luncheon, at $135 per person. Enjoy a glass of G.H Mumm Champagne on arrival and then sit down for a three-course feast, which includes a delicious seafood platter. There will be a fashion parade and Fashions on the Field, so dress to impress and enjoy an afternoon with friends. See here for details.

2/ Pialligo Estate will be having a Melbourne Cup celebration, with two pricing options available at $169 per person (for seating in the Pavilion) and $199 per person (for seating in The Glasshouse) - all inclusive. Either way, guests get to enjoy decadent food, music and wine, in beautiful surroundings. See here for details.

3/ The National Museum of Australia will hosting a casual luncheon, with tickets costing just $55 per person. With a limit of 97 guests, there will be a complimentary glass of sparkling wine, beer or soft drink on arrival, then a delicious two-course meal inspired by spring. A pop-up cash bar will be available on the day serving locally crafted beer, wine, spirits & cocktails. See here for details.

4/ The Canberra Southern Cross Yacht Club will be hosting a 5-course lunch overlooking Lake Burley Griffin, with tickets costing $95 per person. Sweeps will be available, and there will be a range of prizes available throughout the afternoon. Choose between sitting on the balcony, or in the restaurant. See here for details.

Every year, the Melbourne Cup is a much-anticipated event around the country, with Canberra no exception. Although this year feels very different, we can still celebrate - and I think we could all use something to celebrate in 2020.

Book early and then start planning your outfit!
