The race that stops a nation always proves the master of invention here in South Australia, as locals are always up for a new reason to take the day off. Listening to Bruce Abernathy call countless consecutive broadcast races in the lead up the the big show can prove a brutal punishment to the ears, so Glam are looking to offer up the best ways to spend the afternoon so you only have to hear him utter the word ‘special’ on the one occasion.
And where better to soak up the leisure of a Melbourne Cup long lunch than in the Adelaide Hills, lapping up a touch of luxury on the lawns of The Lane? The half-hour trip for the city certainly beats a pub meal, and this year the Hanhdorf winery are looking to channel more than a touch of Flemington for the day, with a open air champagne and canapes gathering on arrival before a 4-course degustation in the Dining Room begins.
But perhaps what really takes the cake at this event for us is the complimentary return bus transfer with your ticket. No, you didn’t read that wrong…
Look, there are going to be plenty of options that flash up in your newsfeed as November 1 draws near. But here’s a truth to commit to memory – the best events always sell out well in advance.
