Attend the 2019 Melbourne Cup Carnival in the company of journalist and presenter, Ed Chamberlin, and enjoy a food and wine tour of the Yarra Valley

Injured Jockeys Fund and Racing Breaks bring you the chance to visit Australia and attend the 2019 Melbourne Cup Carnival, to experience 'the race that stops a nation'. You'll be accompanied by journalist and Sky Sports and ITV presenter, Ed Chamberlin.

A pre-Derby Day luncheon precedes the race, to which all guests are invited. You'll then receive hospitality in the Home Straight Enclosure on Melbourne Cup Day, as well as grandstand tickets to the Victoria Derby day, and VRC Oaks and Mackinnon Stakes days.

Festivities ensue following the races, with a two-course meal, drinks and entertainment at the after party where you'll be able to brush shoulders with jockeys, commentators and like-minded punters.

With this exciting and elegant offer, we're also offering a wine and food tour through Victoria's Yarra Valley, where you'll be able to sample wines and fine cheeses on some of the valley's wine estates and enjoy a lunch among the vineyards.

The Savoy Hotel on Little Collins

Melbourne, Australia

A timelessly elegant escape

Located in the heart of Melbourne, The Savoy Hotel on Little Collins is a great spot from which to enjoy all that this lively city has to offer. Built in 1866, the building is well into its second century, and over the years this historic hotel has housed world-famous guests and celebrities. In fact, the hotel holds that many of Australia's best started their careers on its very doorstep.

Blending contemporary design with Art Deco, the hotel has its own individual character and charm. Warm timbers and brass in the lobby are complemented by luxurious soft furnishings and the contemporary, smart rooms have a retro feel thanks to chequerboard black and white tiled floors. For an evening drink, look no further than the sophisticated cocktail lounge in The Alexander Bar.
