The Victoria Racing Club (VRC) founded in 1840, is the custodian of the Melbourne Cup Carnival and Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne.

Flemington is the best-known and oldest continuing metropolitan racecourse in Australia, with races here every year since 1840. It is the most significant racing heritage site in Australia and in 2006 it was placed on the National Heritage List.

Flemington is also the home of the world’s most vibrant racing event – the Melbourne Cup Carnival. More than Australia’s racing HQ, Flemington is also a world leader in event management and entertainment.
