The Event Centre Melbourne Cup Day Party
It’s the one day on the corporate calendar that it’s perfectly acceptable (and indeed encouraged) to sip bubbles before midday on a Tuesday so you may as well make the most of it at Aquis Park’s Event Centre. It will be the place to be to enjoy a winning day at the races with a tasty grazing menu and beverage package so you can while away the afternoon merrily. The seating is non-reserve cocktail-style and you’ll be well positioned to catch all of the action on the big screen. When it’s all done and dusted, there will be live entertainment throughout the afternoon to keep the party vibing.
