Melbourne Cup

Popularly known as the race that stops a nation, the Melbourne Cup is Australia's major thoroughbred horse race. The event is a quality handicap race for horses 3 years-of-age and older, over a distance of 3,200 metres on the first Tuesday in November at Flemington Racecourse.  

As the highlight of the Australian racing calendar, the Cup attracts huge crowds each year and participants from around the world. 

Our sister company, Waco Kwikform has been a supplier to the Victorian Racing Club (VRC) for the Melbourne Cup for the past 20 years, supplying platform scaffolding, public access stairs and handrail systems, along with a range of additional scaffold structures.

Waco continues to be selected as a supplier for this prestigious event due to the quality of products supplied, their understanding of the VRC’s needs and capability to complete the works professionally and on time each year. Waco Kwikform provides peace of mind, ensuring guest safety, ease of access to the various guest areas and the continued success of the event each year.
