Melbourne Cup at Goodwin

Australia came to a standstill at 3pm on 6 November, and so did Goodwin, as residents and staff across our villages joined in the pulsating action of the country’s biggest social and sporting event, the Melbourne Cup.

It was a festive day marked by special events across our different sites, featuring drinks, nibbles, special lunches and sweeps, to emulate the racetrack spirit. A fun equestrian theme was the dress code of the day, as everyone pulled off their finest wares and cheered for their favourite horses.

Stevie Perrin, Activities Officer Monash, said, “It was great seeing everyone soak in the festive spirit of Melbourne Cup. The sweeps were popular, and we discovered some new fashion icons today!”
