Revellers at the Coogee Bay Hotel were mostly behaved as the Cup was run, with patrons heeding calls to remain seated, even as one winner held a magnum of French Champagne aloft after backing the winner with his mates. 

Double Bay on the other hand is starting to feel the effects of drinking and sunshine, as crowds poured out of establishments post race to smoke and chat. 

While no racegoers or owners are allowed to attend Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne this year due to COVID-19 restrictions, Sydney's Royal Randwick Racecourse is able to host a crowd of around 10,000.  

In Melbourne, locals have flocked to pubs, restaurants and parks for a crowd-free Cup day, the hottest in over half a century.

The COVID-19 pandemic ensured no spectators were on course at Flemington on Tuesday.

Flemington was bathed in sunshine, with the mercury topping 30.4C in the city - its warmest day since March 19. 

Unable to revel in the conditions on course, Melburnians turned to other alternatives to watch the 3pm main race.
