Flemington (Melbourne, Australia)

Flemington - Small Suburb, Big on Character

Squeezed in between Kensington and Ascot Vale, Flemington rates as one of Melbourne’s most popular suburbs. Home to the most famous racecourse in Australia, and host to the Melbourne Cup, this little suburb also packs a punch when it comes to fashion, entertainment, culture, food and wine. A wander around the tree-lined streets behind the racecourse will reveal heritage homes from the Victorian and Edwardian eras, as well as character-filled shopping areas and open-air cafes. The hustle and bustle of Racecourse Road on the other hand is especially well known for its array of multicultural dining spots and prime real estate. So what are you waiting for? Pack your bags, and don’t forget about your sense of adventure!

Melbourne Cup Weekend – What’s all the Fuss About?

If you’re visiting Flemington toward the end of the year, chances are you’ll know that the first Tuesday of November is the Melbourne Cup weekend. Australia’s top thoroughbred horses take to the track to battle it out for the win. This prestigious event is attended not only by fans from far and wide, but also celebrities like Sarah Jessica Parker and Snoop Dogg from down the years. Can you imagine the fashion frenzy of colourful hats, berets, feathers and the likes? If you happen to be passing through, or better still, staying over for a night or two, be sure not to miss this memorable occasion.

But is There Place to Stay in Flemington?

Of course, Melbourne accommodation is usually reasonably priced. Whether you’re travelling with a large family including the dog, or as a couple, you’re bound to find something that suits your price and style. Once you’ve made your way to Flemington’s vibrant locale, you’ll find a number of interesting options. Quest Flemington is a modern apartment complex only a 15-minute walk from the race course, ideal for business and leisure travellers. The property is surrounded by lush gardens, and also includes an outdoor pool and business centre. If you prefer something a little closer to Melbourne Central, you can try Atlantis Hotel, where attractions like Marvel Stadium and Sea Life Melbourne are easily accessible by car.

No Horsing Around in Flemington

Although best known for thoroughbred horse racing, Flemington still has so much more to offer. Friday nights are best started at one of the much-loved pubs, The Quiet Man Irish or Doutta Galla Hotel. Luckily they’re only a couple of blocks away if you have time to visit both. Another popular gathering spot and beer garden is Flemington Filling Station, open on Friday and Saturday nights during summer. No, there’s no gas here, just live entertainment and a cracking atmosphere. On Sunday morning Flemington Farmers Market is the place to be. It’s open from 9am till 5pm and sells the freshest fruit and vegetables, so try to get an early start for the best picks. If you’re not in any rush, why not head on down the road to Phat Milk for lunch? The menu boasts everything from wellness lattes and organic teas to burgers and French toast. As you can see, it’s easy to choose your own adventure when you visit to Flemington, unique in so many ways.
