“The first week of every November the Flemington Racecourse is home to one of the Worlds most famous horse races the Melbourne Cup. There is no other horse race that quite compares to the “race that stops a nation” First run in 1860 , the Melbourne Cup has been stopping the nation for well over 100 years. It is this national celebration that sets it apart from other great horse races, Kentucky Derby , Japan Cup and it will be an experience not to be missed if coming to Melbourne early November . ”

Malay Restaurant

“We love this restaurant. The menu is made up of traditional Malaysian dishes, Indonesian and Chinese dishes. It has a balanced menu, with many traditional Malaysian dishes, perhaps not all of them, but a good selection. The restaurant layout is nice and the atmosphere warm. The staff are criendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Good portion sizes too. It's a must try.”

Pub
“A cornerstone Footscray pub where you can find locals enjoying the Mexican inspired menu with a pint every night of the week. Known for Taco Tuesday's where all tacos are a ludicrously cheap. They are especially vegetarian and vegan friendly. And with a wall of hot sauce to choose from, you won't be disappointed. The pub also supports live music.”
