Australia is my second home and I have never timed a trip back in time to make the Melbourne Cup since I moved back home. There's nothing like dressing up and heading to Melbourne with my dad to watch the ponies. Mate, this year looked hell fun with Nicole Richie, Bambi Northwood-Blythe, old Leyton Blwehitt and Bec from Home and Away. Ridge Forrestor even made an appearance. Maybe next year Miss Buttons will be in the mix too.
