Flemington Spring Racing – The New Grandstand – Take a tour

For most people the interior of the Victorian Racing Club’s new members Grandstand will remain a mystery. Recently completed in time for this year’s Spring Racing Carnival and the Melbourne Cup, the Grandstand was designed by Melbourne Architects Bates Smart. The practice also prepared and installed the Interior Design. See below for a slideshow of this magnificent building and its superb internal fittings.

Since 1865, the racecourse has seen over 10 Grandstands constructed. this is by far the most extravagant and salubrious. At 3pm on Tuesday the 6th 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.
