2017 Melbourne Cup functions in Collie

The Melbourne Cup is known as ‘the race that stops a nation’ and that was definitely true in Collie.

The streets were bare for a couple of hours as punters dressed their best and filled up pubs around town to watch the race.

Around 140 people gathered at the Collie Club for live music and some good food while watching the big race on the big screen.
