Albert Park Lake Loop
Make like Lightning McQueen as you wisp around Albert Park Lake, the same location as the Australian Grand Prix circuit. Just shy of five kilometres, the mostly flat track circles the lake and is one of Melbourne’s most popular. However, the proximity and exposure to Port Phillip Bay does mean strong winds. The well-maintained track has signs every 500 meters as well as water fountains every kilometre, and you’ll often cross black swans. There is even a timed 5 kilometre running event every Saturday morning called parkrun, which starts at Palms Lawn and follows the course anticlockwise to Coot Picnic Area.
