Spring racing fun
Giddy up gondola lovers! Join us over the Melbourne Cup long weekend for lots of fun and prizes!
To celebrate this iconic Melbourne event, we will be launching our wine service. The Eagle Cafe will offer amazing local wines, beers and cider and tastings will also be available from Crittenden, T'Gallant and Foxey's Hangout wineries.
When the big race is underway our gondolas will be matched up to the Melbourne Cup horses for some sweepstakes fun!
With 24 of the world's finest horses lining up for the big event we will have 24 of the world's finest gondolas to match. Our gondolas won't be traveling at a gallop but if the number of your gondola matches the winning horse's number when it crosses the finish line you will be able to celebrate the win with a bottle of bubbles from Crittenden Estate.
There will also be free face painting, colouring competitions and balloon animals for the kids.
The Eagle's opening hours will be extended on Saturday 4th, Sunday 5th, and Monday 6th November until 6pm.
