Cox Plate Day

General Admission

A relaxed way to enjoy your day with plenty of opportunities to get close to the action.

Pukekohe Park

General Admission

Come be part of the roar of the crowd!

Our general admission areas provide a relaxed, laidback environment for eventgoers to spend their day and, thanks to our friends at The Grand Tour, we’ve got our resident DJ on site to make sure the raceday vibe is ‘Cup Day’ appropriate.

When it comes time to race, you have the option of either watching from the covered, outdoor Public Grandstand or getting closer to the thunder of the track from the open public spaces down below or on the lawn adjacent to the Parade Ring.

The lawn space will also feature food, beverage and Tote facilities, and you’re welcome to bring along your own picnic food, unopened non-alcoholic beverages, as well as chairs & picnic rugs for use in outdoor general admission areas.


Verry Elleegant Melbourne Cup
It's the race that stops two nations

Joining us in our general admission space?  Don’t worry, you won’t miss out on the action.  The Lexus Melbourne Cup (set to jump at approx. 5pm) will be shown LIVE on the big screen for your enjoyment.  It’s almost as good as being there.
