This walk starts near the Lakeside Carpark on Aughtie Drive, Albert Park, and loops around Albert Park Lake. Enjoy a walk around the iconic lake on a flat track, with panoramic views of Melbourne’s ever-growing skyline. Albert Park is home to a plethora of events, from runs to cycling events, pet-friendly meetups, water activities, and the Australian Grand Prix. There are many black swans, ducks, and other birds to be seen. There are nine picturesque picnic areas with barbecues dotted around the lake. Albert Park is mainly an on-lead park, but there are some designated off-lead areas where you can let your dog play and have a good run. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
