See Melbourne’s top sights, experience its finest cuisine, and enjoy easy access to the races for an unforgettable holiday.
Flemington Racecourse is situated outside Melbourne’s CBD, but there are still a number of hotels and apartments within walking distance or a short ride away.
If you want to stay close to the action but the most accessible hotels are sold out, you might like to consider homestay accommodation through VRBO, HomeAway or Homestay which can provide you with further options, especially seeing as the Racecourse is surrounded by suburbs on most sides.
If prefer to stay in the CBD so you can explore downtown, on race days there are trains that run direct from Southern Cross Station to the racecourse.
From practical apartments for families to luxurious boutique hotels in the city centre, we have found the best hotel stays for your visit to Melbourne for the races.
