Jog, cycle or walk with your dog around Albert Park Lake - just 3km from the centre of Melbourne. And when you stop to catch your breath, take a moment to enjoy the magnificent views of the city skyline.
Albert Park is home to a plethora of events, from fun runs to cycling events, pet-friendly meetups and the iconic Australian Grand Prix.
Set out on the Albert Park Lake Path and stop at the southern-end of Albert Park Lake to admire the views back towards Melbourne. Swim, dive or try out the indoor sports facilities and fitness gym at the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre. Sign up for some sailing or rowing lessons, hire a boat or if you are a seasoned sailor or rower, join in on the weekly races and meets.
And with both off and on-lead areas, come and enjoy Albert Park with your four-legged pooch. Nine picturesque picnic areas dotted around Albert Park Lake are perfect for an outing with family and friends.
