Lexus Melbourne Cup Tour

The 18-carat gold Lexus Melbourne Cup trophy visits various destinations

Each year, the Lexus Melbourne Cup Tour celebrates the heroes and stories intrinsically linked to the Victoria Racing Club’s 159-year old Melbourne Cup race and its contribution to the nation's historical and cultural heritage.

The 18-carat gold Lexus Melbourne Cup trophy visits various destinations in an effort to unite communities by engaging councils, schools, hospitals, aged-care homes and racing groups in events to raise funds for local causes.

For the first time in its 17 year history, this year’s Lexus Melbourne Cup Tour will be a combination of physical and virtual visits to communities across Australia.

The People’s Cup will visit 27 destinations as part of this year’s exclusively domestic schedule.
