Pilbara News - - Pilbara News - Ali­cia Per­era

■ Kar­ratha pun­ters had plenty of op­tions to en­joy Mel­bourne Cup last Tues­day, with venues around town in­volved in a race of their own to at­tract res­i­dents for the race that stops the na­tion. In Kar­ratha, the Ibis Ho­tel and the Tam­brey both opted to put on buf­fet lunches, while Blanche Bar held a gen­er­ous set lunch and Kar­ratha In­ter­na­tional hosted a re­fined high tea.

In Dampier, Hamp­ton Har­bour Boat and Sail­ing Club also of­fered lunch, com­ple­mented by its har­bour views so din­ers could watch the race in style.

See the pho­tos and read about all the ac­tion in next week’s edi­tion of the Pil­bara News.
