Owner description: Lake Albert is one of Wagga's most popular recreational facilities. It caters for boating, fishing, swimming and other aquatic activities, and is commonly used by walkers, joggers and bike riders. It is family friendly and a must for visitors to Wagga Wagga. Eight fitness stations have been installed in four locations on the eastern side of Lake Albert. Set over 800m, the fitness stations are very popular with users of the lake. The walking track around Lake Albert is 5.5 kilometres.

My inner snob is showing itself with this review. There is nothing wrong with the lake - Except for the sporadic blue green algae from time to time. Has boat ramp for vehicle access a park and BBQ facilities on the side. However that's it. There isn't much special about it. It just gives you the luxury of not having to travel 4+ hours to the coast. There are better Dams/lakes within a few hours drive but for an afternoon this will do.

Regardless of your fitness level, Lake Albert is a beautiful walk or jog. The asphalt track is flat and surrounds the beautiful lake whilst the view takes in natural country side in contrast to some lovely homes.
Parks with facilities for bbqs and picnics are plentiful and the walk has frequent water fountains for you and your pet.

Hi Papalite, thanks for your review of Lake Albert. The walking track is one of the most popular walks in Wagga Wagga. An easy 5.5km stroll which you can do in about one hour. We are lucky to have this space which is great for all ages here in Wagga.

Just a beautiful spot to walk and enjoy the beautiful sunsets. The lake takes on a spot of its own and you will see something different each time you walk around it.
