Spring Racing Carnival. What a great time to be in Melbourne, The sporting capital of the world. 

Tour behind the scenes of the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Explore the National Sports Museum including the Champions Racing Museum & Gallery. Enjoy lunch in Melbourne's Docklands. Visit 'Living Legends', host to our favourite retired champion race horses. Meet the horses and enjoy afternoon tea.

The MCG is a super stage for Australian sport, stadium for the 1956 Olympics, Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games, International Cricket and Australian Rules Football. Highlights of the tour (all subject to availability) include; The Olympic Stand, Media Centre, Players change rooms (football and cricket), Cricket viewing room, the exclusive Member's areas - including the Long Room, Bill Lawry Cricket Centre, The Ponsford Stand - Aerial views, and walk on the hallowed turf (arena).

Explore the National Sports Museum, located at the iconic MCG and featuring more than 2500 sporting artefacts and extensive multi media displays, showcasing the great moments in Australia’s sporting history. Includes the relocated Champions Racing Museum & Gallery. More than just a museum, it captures the spirit of Australian sporting life and relives the moments that have shaped Australia’s rich sporting traditions.

Visit 'Living Legends', host to our favourite retired champion race horses. Meet the horses, watch kangaroos in their natural environment, and enjoy afternoon tea.

Living Legends, located just outside Melbourne, has been established to bring retired champion horses back to the public. It is situated at Woodlands Historic Park. Living Legends is home to retired champion racehorses such as Fields of Omagh, Might and Power, Silent Witness, Apache Cat, Better Loosen Up, Rogan Josh, Chief De Beers, Brew, Efficient, Zipping and Paris Lane....
Living Legends is modelled closely on the Home of Rest for Horses in the United Kingdom and like the Home of Rest they aim to support equine research, education and training to benefit horses of all ages and breeds. Special emphasis, however, is given to the care of older horses.
