Yesterday, many Aussies would have downed tools to watch the Melbourne Cup. The Melbourne Cup is Australia’s major thoroughbred horse race. Marketed as “the race that stops a nation”, it is a 3,200 metre race for three-year-olds and over. It is the richest “two-mile” handicap in the world, and one of the richest turf races. (Ref Wikipedia)
Horse racing is not really that exciting for me so we took off to Currumbin on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia for some Sun, Salt, Surf and Sand.
