Albert Park is a Melbourne suburb about three kilometers south of the Central Business District. With a population of 5,955, this suburb covers the area from St. Vincent Gardens up to Beaconsfield Parade and Mills Street.

For 17 years now, Albert Park is famous for the Australian Grand Prix.

The suburb was named after a public park that was put up in 1864 in honor of Prince Albert, the consort of Queen Victoria. Today, the park is managed by Parks Victoria.

A major part of the suburb is the Albert Park Reserve where the Melbourne Grand Prix Circuit can also be found. It covers 225 hectares of parkland that boasts of barbecue facilities, playgrounds, trails and water activities. But other than the reserve, a long beachfront and a lake are also in the area. The lake area normally attracts runners, cyclists and locals who want to take a leisurely stroll whenever they want to.

Housing structures in Albert Park are mostly the Victorian terrace and semi-detached types. Some are the Edwardian housing type. A great number of residential areas are in heritage overlays (HO) which form part of a local government planning scheme to protect their characters.

In terms of accessibility, several tram lines are now in operation and service Albert Park. They service tram route 1, tram route 96 and tram route 112. Bus services are in place while bicycle lanes are situated along the beach and Canterbury Roads.
