Albert Park and Middle Park

Where to shop, dine and relax in the neighbourhoods of Albert Park and Middle Park.

There is far more to this historic and highly sought-after area than its picturesque and iconic lake that is home to the annual Formula One Australian Grand Prix.

Albert Park and Middle Park are host to some of the finest 1930s and 1940s architecture in Melbourne, with pretty attached and row housing lining its leafy streets and rose-adorned parks, much dating back to Victorian and Edwardian eras, such as magnificent terraces of St Vincent's Place.
