Flemington Spring Racing Carnival – Take a peek

For many of us, getting a look inside the Member’s enclosure at Flemington is a ‘bit of a long shot’. The new grandstand will provide splendid viewing and hospitality for this its second year for those lucky enough to be visiting the Racecourse on Derby Day, Melbourne Cup, Oaks Day or Stakes Day. Let’s take a peek at what’s awaiting the visitors.

Designed by Architects Bates Smart, the practice also prepared and installed the entire interior design. For your viewing pleasure, here’s a slideshow of the Grandstand and its features.

Since 1865, the racecourse has seen over 10 Grandstands constructed. this is by far the most extravagant and salubrious. At 3pm on Tuesday the 5th of November up to 10,000 people can view the great race from the new Grandstand. With new bars and restaurants, the venue is simply gorgeous.


As can be seen from the images, the furniture is both contemporary and traditional with a modern splash.
