The annual Lexus Melbourne Cup Tour commemorates the Melbourne Cup’s contribution to Australian heritage, as the $200,000 trophy visits a number of selected destinations with the intention of uniting communities and raising funds for local causes.
The tour also helps us to remember iconic Melbourne Cup moments. Like this...
This year is the 16th annual Lexus Melbourne Cup Tour, and we cannot be more excited to host the 18-carat gold trophy in Shepparton on Friday 3rd August, and in Nagambie on Saturday 4th August.
While in Shepparton, the Cup will spark community engagement as it travels to Tarcoola Village, Maude Street Mall, and Gowrie Street Primary School among other locations.
In Nagambie the iconic trophy will visit Nagambie Health Care before heading off to the Royal Mail Hotel, where the community is invited to attend and take part in the festivities.
This tour will be one for the history books as the trophy is set to travel to seven destinations within the United Kingdom and Ireland, and to Seoul for the very first time!
