Wide streets, exotic trees, heritage buildings, and open air cafes characterize the waterfront suburb of Albert Park. Located just 3 kilometers south of Melbourne, almost 6,000 residents call Albert Park home, most of whom are professionals working in the CBD
Afternoons are filled with families playing in the Albert Park reserve or along the Port Phillip beach. Runners and cyclists race through beautiful trails and small boats cruise the bay.
On the weekends dozens of families and tourists visit the local beach and Kerferd Pier, an award winning burger stand. There is also a good selection of hotels, cafes, and bars.
The Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre provides residents with large swimming pools, squash courts, table tennis, and basketball courts. The neighborhood is also home to the Melbourne Grand Prix Circuit and once a year hosts the Formula One Australian Grand Prix. This event attracts hundreds of thousands of attendees and the races generate a lot of noise, so residents can expect to lose the peace and quiet of Middle Park for the four days it takes place.
Housing-wise, this area is home to a mixture of Edwardian and Victorian homes that have been converted into apartments. Property here is pricey and many homes are in the million dollar range.
