Only 3km from the CBD, Albert Park is popular for a range of activities like dog walking, jogging, cycling, sailing and rowing. Apart from the lake itself, other attractions include ovals, playgrounds, restaurants and a 5km walking and running track.

I attempted to walk around this park a couple of weeks prior to the late March 2017 Australian Grand Prix. Instead of a pleasant walk enjoying the native grasses, lake, black swans, cygnets and ducks, I was presented with metre after metre of ugly fencing...More

Something every petrol head has to do in Melbourne. Only a couple of weeks before the race so the fences were all up and the gravel was out ready. An experience not to miss. Yes it's a slow cruise round due to harsh speed limits...More
