Melbourne Cup 2019 | PHOTOS

Melbourne Cup celebrations at the Bushman's Arms Hotel and at the Naracoorte Bowling Club were a hit on Tuesday.

Bec Greening and Naome Burdon organised an elegant 2019 Argyle Travel and Cruise Melbourne Cup Luncheon at the Bushman's Arms Hotel and kicked off their celebrations with delicious canapes and a glass of wine.

Proceeds from the day are being donated to a local Women's Wellness Group, and Naome said she was happy to be helping a great cause.

The bowling club welcomed a group of about 60 people who all enjoyed a lunch, dessert and a fashion parade. They held a few raffles and a best dressed competition while the Melbourne Cup played on the big screen.

The cup was won by $10 chance Vow and Declare.
