Flemington is beautiful with all the roses and well manicured lawns. During race season especially Melbourne Cup, there is so much that happens and so many different types of entry to the Cup. There are facilities for everyone and disabled parking is very good. Flemington is not just used for the races but a variety of of other events throughout the year and, it is located right next-door to the Royal Melbourne Show Grounds. The train stops outside the gates of Flemington race course and the show grounds from the city. It returns back to Flinders Street Station in the city and has connecting trains on all other lines. There is also trams to Flemington so transport should not be a problem. Flemington is being upgraded and has been upgraded and changed in some areas if only for the Melbourne Cup. I have found that you can take your own food into the races if you want and save on money. Make sure you dress to there dress code or you won't be allowed in. Have a fantastic time at Flemington!
