Discover the beauty and history of Albert Park, a natural oasis located just a stone's throw away from Melbourne's bustling city centre. This park is part of the traditional country of the Bunurong People and is a significant cultural landscape for the Aboriginal community. We respect and acknowledge the ongoing connection and role of the Bunurong Traditional Owners in caring for this Country.
Albert Park offers an array of activities for visitors, including jogging, cycling, walking, and even dog-walking around the picturesque Albert Park Lake. Take in the stunning views of Melbourne's skyline while enjoying the fresh air and exercise.
The park is also host to a wide range of events throughout the year, from fun runs to cycling events, pet-friendly meetups, and the exciting Australian Grand Prix. Head out on the Albert Park Lake Path and enjoy breathtaking views of the city skyline from the southern end of the lake.
For water enthusiasts, the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre offers swimming, diving, indoor sports facilities, and a fitness gym. The park also offers sailing and rowing lessons, boat hires, and weekly races and meets for experienced sailors and rowers.
With both on and off-lead areas, Albert Park is the perfect place to enjoy a day out with your furry friend. The park features nine picturesque picnic areas around the lake, perfect for a relaxing outing with family and friends.
