Melbourne Cup, 2017 | Photos, pictures

BATHURST has put on a sunny spring day for the 2017 Melbourne Cup, and residents are out celebrating the day.

A number of functions are under way at local pubs and clubs, and also within plenty of local offices across the city.

One of the most popular functions was organised by the Macquarie Care Centre at Kelso’s Holy Trinity Church hall where partygoers of all ages have gathered to join in the fun.
