As the race that stops a nation got underway last Tuesday, many groups got together to celebrate in their own ways.
Robertstown's Falcons Basketball and Tennis Club hosted a Melbourne Cup luncheon and saw great attendance.
Women, as well as a handful of men, dressed up for the occasion - with dresses, fascinators and their best attire on show for the afternoon.
Held as a fundraiser for the club, it was also a way to bring the community together for an enjoyable day of racing.
With the latest fashion on show, race sweeps and more, there was plenty of action at the event.
Visitors from Robertstown, Kapunda, Manoora, Tarlee and further afield enjoyed the day of fundraising fun.
