The highlight of Broome’s sporting and social calendar attracted crowds from far and wide on Saturday, as thousands packed into the Turf Club for the Broome Cup.

While punters kept a close eye on each race and fashionistas strutted on the catwalk, special guests relished the elegant atmosphere of the Allure marquee, toasting a gin and tonic while enjoying a sensational selection of foods provided by Cable Beach Club Resort.

The iconic event brought an end to a successful 12 weeks of racing action at Broome Turf Club, with more than 10,000 going through the gates on the final two rounds alone.
