Melbourne Cup day is one that stops two nations, and Kiwis certainly stopped in their tracks on Tuesday for this year's big race.

Auckland's two hottest spots to enjoy a day of racing were Ellerslie racecourse, where guests donned hats, heels and fascinators trackside, while society girls and racing fans chose to wear their raceday best to Simon Gault's Euro restaurant for a flutter waterside.

After enojying a delicious three-course meal and plenty of bubbles to wash it down, the party really kicked off when the racing ended, with Euro's bar packed until late into the night.
