A bit about our Club

The Albert Park Yachting and Angling Club (APYAC) has been a hive of activity in Albert Park since 1909. With its engaging atmosphere and magnificent outlook, this is undoubtedly one of Melbourne’s Premier Clubs. We have two decks with breathtaking views over Port Phillip Bay and on a good day you can watch the dolphins at play.

At the Bar or in the Angler’s Restaurant, members enjoy the club at its finest, catch a gorgeous sunset or meet with friends around delicious food and wines. There’s never a dull moment at APYAC with events hosted all through the year.

Our prime purpose is of course “Fishing”. Below the club-hall sit over 50 members fishing boats, some over 80 years old! We have several Club Boats for hire.


The Albert Park Yachting and Angling club have a vast array of events throughout the year including the famous Australia Day Clinker Boat Race, Regular Angling Trips, Music nights as well as special Lunches and Dinners at the Club with great guest speakers.
