Lake Alford Recreational Park

Lake Alford Recreational Park, affectionately known as the 'duck ponds , welcomes you at the southern entry into the Gympie Region. Preserving the rich history of the gold miners who saved Queensland in 1867 with an iconic 'Goldminer's Monument' statue standing at the park's entrance. Designed with families in mind, the park boasts fantastic amenities, including an all-abilities playground, barbecues, restrooms, an off-leash dog park, and ample off-street parking. The tranquil lake is a highlight, offering a serene setting for families to enjoy. Please refrain from feeding the wildlife to maintain the park's natural balance. Every first, third, and fifth Sunday of the month, markets are held at the park which showcase a diverse range of stalls including handmade goods, fashion, crafts, accessories, and fresh produce. The park is also home to the Gympie Gold Mining and Historical Museum, located in the northeast area, offering a fascinating insight into Gympie's gold mining history. On the opposite end of the park sits the Gympie Visitor Information Centre where you can drop in to talk to a local and discover more about the surrounding region. Lake Alford Recreational Park provides a unique destination for families, history enthusiasts, and market lovers alike. Include it in your itinerary for a memorable experience, whether you're seeking a quiet retreat, leisurely walk, or a fun day out with the kids.
