Hotels Near Melbourne Formula 1 Grand Prix

The Albert Park street circuit was used for Grand Prix races during the late 1950's but it wasn't until 1996 that the Melbourne race was an official event on the Forumula 1 Grand Prix race calendar. The track winds its way around the leafy inner-city suburb Albert Park and Albert Park Lake.

The Melbourne race is often the season-opener for the year, the 2012 race was scheduled for Thursday 15th to Sunday 18th of March and the 2016 race is scheduled for Thursday 18th to Sunday 20th March. The main race is usually held on the Sunday.

The number of private apartments and holiday homes available has increased over the last few years.

Travelling to see a Formula 1 race can be a great way to see a new country, other nearby races include the Formula 1 Singapore in mid September and the Formula 1 Malaysia in early October.
