It’s the race that stops a nation – where punters nervously rummage through their bets as the thoroughbreds clap down the two mile track at Flemington.

The first Tuesday of November is coming around the bend, and we’ve got you covered with our huge list of locations to watch the race.

This year’s Melbourne Cup is scheduled to run at 12pm (WA time) on Tuesday November 6.

Whether you prefer a lavish luncheon hosted by Lisa Wilkinson at Crown Ballroom going at $259.93 a pop, or a modest three-course set menu with bubbles on arrival for $55 at The Carine, we’ve got you covered.

For those watching from outdoor locations – pack a cardigan and pin in your hat. It’ll be 19 degrees in Perth, with a slight chance of rain and moderate winds.

It’ll be a chilly 17 degrees in Mandurah.

Here’s a list of places you can watch the big race in 2018.
