19. VISIT THE â€œRACE THAT STOPS THE NATIONâ€
Known as â€œThe Race that stops the Nationâ€, the Melbourne Cup definitely qualifies as a must-do experience. Held annually at Flemington Race Course on the first Tuesday in November, the prestigious horse race is famous for offering outrageous prize #money, which draws in competitors from all over the world. For spectators however, the amazing fashions on the field competitions, in addition to the opportunity to â€œhave a flutterâ€ (place a bet on their favourite horse), makes the race one of the most important events on Melbourne’s social and sporting calendar.
