Come and See Lake Tyrrell

Publish Date: 18 December 2020

The highly anticipated Lake Tyrrell Infrastructure Project is now open.

Encompassing the construction of a viewing platform, shelter area, car parking, boardwalk and all access amenities, the delivered infrastructure also extends to providing protection to the lake environment.

All weather access roads, gravel access tracks and walking tracks are complimented by landscaping in style with natural elements of the lake.

A major upgrade of the Calder Hwy-Baileys Road intersection is also addressing the safety concerns surrounding access to the area from the main entry point.

The aim of the project is to drive tourism, be it local, domestic and international post COVID-19. The enhanced visitor experience also meets the growing demand placed on the lake as interest in its beauty continues to grow.

The diversification and strengthening of the tourism trade, particularly in Sea Lake is already being seen with new and established businesses picking up and will have their success underpinned by a world class destination on their doorstep.

The project was a highly collaborative success and was funded by Council, the Federal Government’s Our Rivers Our Regions fund, the State Government’s Regional Tourism and Infrastructure Fund and the Mallee Catchment Authority.

Its success would not have been possible without the support of all levels of government, the Project Control Group and the Sea Lake and District community.

A formal opening to acknowledge the project and everyone’s input is being put together and is likely to happen in February of next year.
