The Melbourne Cup party at Taree's Bushland Drive track continued long into the afternoon.
Before the great race was streamed live from Melbourne's Flemington Racecourse, the prestigious Fashions on the Field competition was decided.
The women's prize went to Tracey Strecitz while Brad James was recognised as the best dressed man.
Bronte Willett won the best millinery.
It was a great location for some to celebrate their birthdays. Monica and Robyn Williams had a joint celebration while Kye Lewis spent his first day as an adult with his mates at the track.
The winner of the Melbourne Cup was Vow and Declare, ahead of Prince of Arran and Il Paradiso.
The finished ended in controversy following a protest of the final standings.
A five-race program ran at the Taree track.
