Melbourne Cup in Shanghai


I am from Melbourne, Australia the only city in the world that has a horse race that brings us a public holiday so we can dress up and attend the race or have  bbq and watch in on the tellie (that’s Aussie for Television). The Melbourne Cup is the race that stops the nation where millions of Australians collectively hold their breath at 3pm on the first Tuesday of November.

Even though Australian Expats may have left the shores of our motherland, this legendary event is not forgotten and you can find loads of Aussies attending formal and informal events around town.
Below are some of the places you can join in the excitement of the Melbourne Cup in Shanghai, so bring out the tails, fluff up the frock and don a fancy hat for a day of fun and excitement.


The Following Aussie bars and associations are hosting events on the day, with live coverage of the race:

The Camel

The Shed

Big Bamboo

Australian Women’s Social Group Shanghai
