Peek Inside The 2013 Melbourne Cup Birdcage Marquees: GH Mumm, MYER, Emirates and Lavazza

Fashion, high-heel and feet emergencies were held at bay by this lovely gentleman army!

Impressive sabrage demonstrations and celebrity ambassador Pia Miller were in the GH Mumm Marquee

Lavazza was the only marquee with a golden coffee machine - the only way to make it through the long day.

Welcome to the Melbourne Cup Carnival at Flemington Racecourse! The height of the carnival is the prestigious and somewhat mysterious Birdcage marquees. Hidden beyond ticket-only gates with an exclusive invite-only guestlist and limited access it's their unattainable status that makes them all that more appealing. The prime place to watch the races from above the track, mingle with international and Australian celebrities, be famously entertained, eat the finest Australian chefs have to offer and sip on the finest champagne. Come with me for an inside tour of the Birdcage's top four marquees of G.H Mumm, Lavazza, MYER and Emirates - it was an honour to be invited to attend this extravaganza and experience first hand what it's like to do Melbourne Cup in premium style.
