What the Illawarra wore on Melbourne Cup day last year

Melbourne Cup Day attracted thousands of stylish, cheerful punters to a sun-drenched Kembla Grange racecourse in November last year.

It seemed untidy drunks and silly costumes missed the invite in 2016, replaced by neatly dressed men and women sipping on champagne and downing tinnies.

Click or swipe through the above gallery of last year’s celebrations and be sure to share with your friends if you see anyone you recognise.
