If you are travelling down south and want a break from it all, Lake Alford Park is a great choice. There is a plentiful supply of benches from which you can sit, relax and recharge. The park is spacious, and the lake itself is full of birdlife (Ibis, ducks, geese and swans). The birdlife alone makes this well worth visiting. Highly recommended (PS the Gympie mining museum is within the same park area).

Always admire how clean and inviting the park looks whenever we drive past when visiting Gympie. The markets on the weekend are lovely.

A lovely short walk around the lake and over the little bridge. Nice trees and gardens. Heaps of birds and ducks and even some little water dragons. There is clean toilets, picnic benches and you can walk to the gold mining museum. Great place to come with kids.

A peaceful & delightful place to be. The amount of waterbirds & honey-eaters is wonderful if you are a bird lover. The park itself is well maintained and well worth the stop over if you are traveling through Gympie. It also provides a enclosed dog park for you favourite 4 legged friend(s) to stretch their legs. I'm a local and I jut love going there just to enjoy the peace of nature.
