Derby Day is on us this year

Long lines. Crammed transport. Hot and sweaty crowds. If heading to Flemington sounds like a headache to you, be our guest at the Lower Plenty Hotel. We’re hosting a Derby Day celebration to remember – and you’re invited!

It’s an event that Australians all know and love. A day where the bold, the beautiful, the stylish and the sporty come together. It’s Derby Day, and boy do we have a lot in store for you.


You’ll experience only the best that spring and the races have to offer. Glorious sunshine, fresh blooms, fabulous fascinators – and a complimentary glass of sparkling upon arrival.


Hold your horses, there’s more.

Be sure to wear the sharpest suit or most jaw-dropping dress your closet has to offer. Then pair it with a picture-perfect pocket square or captivating fascinator to make your ensemble oh so Instagram worthy.


Why? Because we’ve got $1,000 worth of prizes up for grabs for our Fashions on the Field competition. We’ve also planned a bunch of games between races, which gives you an even greater chance to get your hands on some goodies.


We’ll also have some appetisers floating around, along with a mouth-watering Chef’s BBQ out on the Terrace. Enjoy all this finger-lickin’ good food while being entertained by our favourite local artists, Harlow and Hart.


Busting to tell your friends and family? Here are the details:

  • When: Saturday 4 November 2017
  • Time: 11am – 5pm
  • Place: Lower Plenty Hotel – 4 Main Rd, Lower Plenty VIC


Even if you don’t celebrate the races, we’d still love for you to join us in soaking up the spring sunshine, the fresh air and the blooming flora that surrounds our hotel.
