Melbourne Cup 2017: Bega Valley celebrates at the Sapphire Coast Turf Club | Photos

There was no shortage of fashion and celebrations at the Sapphire Coast Turf Club on Tuesday during the Melbourne Cup Day celebrations.

We snapped some of the day’s best fashions, with an impressive display of decorative hats and elegant dresses contending in the fashions on the field competition.

Visitors from as far as Perth and Brisbane were by the track at the Sapphire Coast Turf Club alongside plenty of locals enjoying a day out in the sunshine.

Fashions was a huge part of the celebrations at the Sapphire Coast Turf Club, winners on the day were Hayden Kidd as best dressed man, Jess Pincini and Sean Smith as best-dressed couple, Rebecca Russell in the under 40s ladies and Samantha Marris in the over 40s.
