The Australian Champion Stayer is awarded annually to the Thoroughbred horse whose performances in Australia over distances of 2,200 metres (approximately 11 furlongs) and greater are deemed to be the superior to its rivals. It has been awarded since the 1999 - 2000 season. Apart from that first award, the Melbourne Cup winner has always won the award.
