In the lead up to the highly-anticipated relaunch of one of Australia’s most beloved properties, The Anchorage will celebrate Melbourne Cup with a decadent luncheon at their Hamptons-style destination.

Hosted by the formidable Kirstie Clements, former editor-in-chief of Vogue Australia, the day will see guests indulge in a three-course lunch in the newly-renovated restaurant The Galley Kitchen, with the menu designed by executive chef Michael Jenkins featuring locally-sourced produce, fresh seafood and Hunter Valley wines.

Fashion and festivities will be at the forefront of the day with a number of prizes to be won, including a Spa Lucca membership valued at $1,200, as well as live coverage of the race on large screens throughout the venue.

Boasting panoramic water views, The Anchorage is the perfect backdrop to celebrate ‘the race that stops the nation’, with lunch or overnight packages available, the latter including bed and breakfast for two in one of the newly-designed Anchorage suites, with an optional $50 Spa Lucca voucher credit to be used during the stay.

Majestically positioned where the Pacific Ocean meets the Great Southern Land, The Anchorage is destined to become Australia’s most talked-about holiday destinations with an unrivalled focus on five-star excellence, effortless luxury and exclusive dining, combined with the magical, sapphire waters of one of the world’s most idyllic ports.

Perfectly located just 2.5 hours north of Sydney and 30 minutes from Newcastle Airport, The Anchorage offers 80 luxury accommodation suites and an innovate range of on and offsite bespoke experiences including world-class dining, lounge, bar and pool facilities, as well as the deluxe relaxation of the property’s Spa Lucca.
