Lake Tyrrell Closed

Publish Date: 30 March 2020

Lake Tyrrell has been closed to visitors in line with COVID-19 restrictions around non-essential travel.

The popular tourist attraction, where a multi-million-dollar tourism infrastructure project is underway, will be closed until further notice to minimise traffic travelling to the site along the Calder Highway.

The closure comes on the back of last week’s Council announcement that community facilities such as recreational lakes facilities, playgrounds, senior citizens buildings, sporting facilities, caravan parks and museums had been closed to the public.

The decision to close Lake Tyrrell has been made with the health of the township of Sea Lake and travellers in mind.

Contractors will still be permitted on-site to continue the building project.

Council has also gone a step further with recreational lakes closures. Green Lake, Lake Tchum, Lake Watchem and Wooroonook Lakes will all be closed to the public.

Council last week closed the amenity buildings at the lakes but will now close the lakes completely, including boat ramps, in response to the tightening of non-essential travel enforcement.
