Are you ready for the Melbourne Cup?


Known as the race that stops the nation every November, the Melbourne Cup is your chance to frock up, and have a flutter. And King Street Wharf is the place to be this year!

We’ll have a TAB van parked on the wharf, lucky door prizes plenty of sit-down luncheons and cocktail parties PLUS a photo competition for the sultry Phillies and studs parading down the promenade – our nine-wharf long catwalk.

Come rain or shine, Cup Day is gearing up to be a fun-filled affair at King Street Wharf!

On the boardwalk

Whether you’re ducking out of the office to place a bet, or stepping out in style for lunch at one of our 12 restaurants, you won’t have to go far to place your bets thanks to the 11m long TAB van that will be on the wharf in between Strike Bowling and George’s Mediterranean.
