Spring is reaching its tail end, meaning that the Melbourne Cup is just around the corner. To celebrate, you'll find everything from pop-up food joints and bars to trackside fashion and live gigs at Brisbane Racing Club's Melbourne Cup Day.

Headlining the day is homegrown singer-songwriter Conrad Sewell performing live. Kick back to his tunes like 'Start Again', Taste the Feeling' and 'Healing Hands' in the sun — with a drink in hand, of course.

Drinks-wise, you'll be spoilt for choice. If wine's your thing, you can relax on a daybed with a sparkling wine in the Chandon S Courtyard or add some flowers, fruit and sweets to your glass at the Pimp Your Prosecco experience as part of Spring in the Plaza. If you'd rather sip on a cocktail, head to the Canadian Club Zone, which will be serving up plenty of spring-themed cocktails and providing beats throughout the day. Or, you can grab an energising pick-me-up at the Red Bull Bar on the Public Lawn. Here, you'll also find a DJ playing from atop a two-storey shipping container bar. From there, head up to the Furphy Deck, where you can relax and enjoy views of the racecourse.

Throughout the day, there'll be plenty of food on offer, too, from loaded chicken nuggets and retro cheese platters to refined Asian-inspired eats. Once you've had your fill of food and bevs, you can gussy up with the help of pro makeup artists at the complimentary pampering station before entering the Billy J Boutique Fashion on the Field. Then, to cap off the day, head up to the Society Rooftop for a party with top-notch views, where you can party as the sun goes down.
