Cup day glam comes to Queenstown (Slideshow)


Glamorous girls and dapper gents filled Queenstown’s bars on Melbourne Cup day. 

Wearing posh frocks and fascinators, or suits and hats, the punters took to the town for a flutter on the annual horserace. 

Hundreds booked the afternoon off work, many enjoying fashion shows, champagne and fundraising at Ballarat Trading bar in The Mall. 

French second favourite Dunaden beat British hopeful Red Cadeaux in a photo finish at the Flemington race, and the party continued until the wee hours.
