Darvall Lodge never lets the fun engendered by the Melbourne Cup festival pass and 2018 was no exception!

On 2nd November, residents dressed up in their fancy hats and proudly took turns parading for the annual party. In an absolutely unique version of Fashions on the Field, residents got very creative and crafty with their hat designs, decorated with feathers and flowers.

A “horse race” encouraged residents to cheer for their wooden horse as they rolled the dice, trying to get their horse to the finish line first.

Accompanied by a delicious afternoon tea, everyone had a smile on their face as they revelled in the spirit of a day at the track.

“It was all about fun and socialising,” said Darvall Manager, Melina Benger.

“We had a ball!”
