retrospect of fashion from Spring Races Melbourne 2017

The Spring Racing carnival puts fashion and glamour on center stage. Our was busy, transporting racegoers to Flemington along the Yarra and Maribyrnong Rivers.

Every year, people are realising the easiest way to avoid the congestion, crowds and parking hassles of going to the Melbourne Cup- is to take a water taxi to Flemington.

Were you part of the fun?

Our professional photographer was on hand and captured some colorful shots of people having a great time. We had early morning pickups, and late night drop-offs back in the Melbourne CBD. All water taxi services were private bookings- this means that the boat was for the exclusive use of one group only. Many people selected drinks and food packages with their bookings- it proved popular with travelers to the racetrack as well as those returning from the day out.

See some of the exciting dresses from the 2017 Spring Racing Carnival in Melbourne which were featured on Mamamia. As we look back on the fashion and fun, it’s worth mentioning some tips to help you plan for next year- the Melbourne Cup of 2018. Book any accommodation well ahead of time- and arrange your over-water transfer as soon as you can. We can meet you at a number of boarding points along the Yarra or Maribyrnong rivers. Pick up and drop-off times can be booked to suit your own itinerary- so you’re not at the mercy of public transport or traffic on the roads.
