What to expect at LANDMARK by Lexus at Melbourne Cup Carnival


On November 7, 2023, the Lexus Melbourne Cup Day promises more than just horse racing. As the centrepiece of the Melbourne Cup Carnival, this event is set to offer an unparalleled lifestyle experience for attendees, with Lexus leading the way through its unique offering, LANDMARK by Lexus.

LANDMARK by Lexus, a reimagined lifestyle experience, is set to captivate attendees with its showcase of sophistication, style, and refinement that Lexus is renowned for. This year, the focus is on “Close to the Source,” a concept that celebrates the inherent purity and appeal of natural materials and sustainable, organic produce.

An Exquisite Collaboration

Collaborating with Lexus for this grand event is Australian restaurateur, chef, and long-standing Friend of Lexus, Luke Mangan. Together, they present a culinary experience that not only delights the taste buds but also highlights the importance of locally and ethically sourced produce.

Lexus Ambassador Melissa Leong will join Mangan in detailing the culinary journey, exploring the flavours and techniques behind the food offering.

Inside the LANDMARK by Lexus

The LANDMARK by Lexus pavilion is a haven of tranquillity and elegance. Attendees are invited to venture across the three levels of the pavilion, where they can enjoy the soothing sounds of the Koto, Japan’s national instrument.

The pavilion also features bespoke florals, ceramics, mixology, food, and furniture, all carefully crafted by masters in their fields3.

A Celebration of Artisans

This year’s collaborators are artisans who bring the “Close to The Source” concept to life through innovative design and breakthrough culinary flair.

John Pappas, Lexus Australia Chief Executive, expresses his enthusiasm about this year’s event. He said, “Lexus is all about creating amazing experiences, and this year, with all our collaborators in the Birdcage Enclosure, we will take amazing to even greater heights.”

The 2023 Lexus Melbourne Cup Day is not just a horse racing event; it’s a celebration of culture, culinary arts, design and community. So get ready for an amazing experience at the Flemington Racecourse on November 7!
