Melbourne Cup Quiz (archived from clockwise.com.au)
This collection of 50 questions reproduced from the Illawarra Mercury is a VERY OLD quiz in which some questions are not usable as they either refer to photos that were not reproduced with the text or are out of date. The questions appear to have been written in 2008. However, many questions are interesting, evoke curiosity as to the answer and may be of use to teachers who are constructing their own Melbourne Cup quizzes.
