Lake Alford Recreational Park



Lake Alford Recreational Park, sometimes also referred to as the duck pond's, is located at the southern entry into Gympie. At the entrance to the park is the "Goldminer's Monument" which commemorates the gold miners who saved Queensland. Gold was discovered in Gympie in 1867 at a time when Queensland was in severe economic depression. The park has wonderful facilities including all abilities playground, barbecue facilities, public amenities, Visitor Information Centre, off the leash dog park, and plenty of off-street parking for caravans and RVs. An abundance of bird life at the park is evident, however we ask you to please not disturb the balance of nature by not feeding the wildlife. On the first, third and fifth Sunday of each month the Gympie Museum Markets are held. Located on the northeastern edge of the park is the Gympie Gold Mining Museum which also has a cafe attached.
