The BEST Melbourne Cup marquees in recent history

Can you guess what my favourite part of the the best part of the Spring racing season is? The marquee interiors – particularly those of Flemington.

Their architects and designers throw away all concerns of expense and restraint and compete for the public vote of the most extravagant design.

The Melbourne Cup attracts some of the most marketing-savvy and brand-aware sponsors, rivalling to make their marquee the ‘must be at’ of the year.

Take a look at the images below featuring Swisse, Lavazza, Lexus, Moet & Chandon, Emirates and others and see if you can stop yourself from saying ‘wow’…
