Race Weekend Hotels for Albert Park events - Tips
Note that the circuit is only around 3 miles from the very center of Melbourne. It lies in what's called the "green belt" just between the beach at St. Kilda and the downtown area. So while, of course, you'd want a hotel within walking distance from the track, you could do much worse than try to book accommodations at downtown Melbourne Australia Hotels and catch one of the gazillion trams that shuttle race fans back and forth from about any downtown cross-street to all turns / gates / corners of the park and the track. Really it's that simple. 10 minutes and less a dollar or two fare and you're at the track, making this one of the most easily accessable of all the F1 Circuits, on a par with say Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve in Montreal Canada. But it isn't simple if your thinking of parking your car within walking distance is heavily policed with no more than 1 hour meter parking at a time so that regular folk who live or work nearby can function during the influx of so many and folks for the Grandprix don't resort to the old fan favorite "camp in your car" cheap race accommodation trick! Even the teams and drivers stay at the upscale downtown hotels and are shuttled to the nearby track. Get your bearings by the area map link below.
