Here at Livewell, we are well connected with many establishments in the health and fitness industry, where our physio team often train, study and give talks to physiology students. The impressive Victoria Park Golf Complex is no exception.
If you are a lover of golf, then Victoria Park Golf Complex is definitely worth a visit while you are in Brisbane. Located North side, just 2 kilometres from Brisbane city on 110 acres of immaculate inner-city grounds, this is undoubtably one of Australia’s favourite public courses among golf fanatics. You can expect highly challenging tees and fairways to navigate your way through, while enjoying the amazing views and rolling greens that this 18 hole, USGA rated par 65 course has to offer. And the bonus is that the course is owned by Brisbane City Council, which means that anyone is welcome to experience it without membership.
There are many other things to do within the grounds of Victoria park, which make it a great place to visit with friends or family, as there is a little something for everyone to enjoy. These include, a driving range, mini golf course, playground, market carts and a bar and bistro offering a seasonal menu and patio, in which to relax after a day’s fun activities.
Victoria Park can also be used for meetings, events and weddings. Where guests can enjoy a choice of 8 character-filled filled function rooms, each with a unique design, or be part of a luxury wedding surrounded by stunning gardens, ancient trees and amazing golf course and city views, with five wedding venues to choose from within the grounds. This would truly make anyone’s day extra special.
On 7th August 2018 Victoria Park Golf Course was host to the Schweppes City of Brisbane Pro AM Championships, which saw both amateurs and professionals competing from all over South-East Queensland and beyond. It was a day to remember with golf professionals Dale Brandt-Richards and Brett Rankin finding themselves in a tie situation at 8 under par to win the competition.
So, why not pay a visit to this wonderful attraction, where you can practice like a professional or simply enjoy the more relaxed way of life, surrounded by spectacular scenery. The park is open from 6am until 10pm, 7 days a week but please check times for individual activities.
The best way to get to Victoria park is by car as there is easy, free car parking available at the large onsite carpark. If you are travelling by public transport, it is pretty easy to jump on a bus to Herston Street which run from North to South, stopping at many destinations. Catching a train is a little more involved as you would need to exit at Newmarket, Roma street or Brunswick station and then get a taxi or bus to Herston Road. Victoria Park is just a short walk from Herston Road.
