Lake Tyers State Park is one of the jointly managed parks within Gippsland. The Joint Management agreement recognises the fact that the Gunaikurnai people hold Aboriginal Title and maintain a strong connection to Country. As custodians of the land, they are the rightful people who speak for their Country. These parks and reserves are cultural landscapes that continue to be part of Gunaikurnai living culture. For more information on Joint Management, please visit the Gunaikurnai Traditional Owner Land Management Board and the Gunaikurnai Land and Waters Aboriginal Corporation.
Enjoy a beautiful bush walk or forest drive through beautiful old growth and warm temperate rainforest in Lake Tyers State Park
Toorloo Arm Walk – 2 km, 45 min return (Grade 2)
In a tranquil setting, the walk meanders along the Toorloo Arm from Cherry Tree to Burnt Bridge. Through dry eucalypt forest and along Riparian woodland, you may spy a White-bellied Sea Eagle or be lucky enough to witness Glossy Black Cockatoos feeding on local Allocasuarina seeds.
Lonely Bay Walk – 4 km, 1hr 30 min return (Grade 2)
The track leaves Blackfellow Arm Track and continues to Lonely Bay picnic area, meandering through old growth Warm Temperate forest. You will catch glimpses of Lake Tyers and may spy a majestic White-bellied Sea Eagle. The Fern Loop section is optional and does contain rough terrain such as tree roots. Can get slippery when wet.
Marsdenia Rainforest Walk – 25 min circuit (Grade 3)
This walking track passes through a good example of Warm Temperate Rainforest. Warm Temperate Rainforests are a rare vegetation class that occur along gullies and river flats, and are dominated by a range of non-eucalypt canopy species above an understorey of smaller trees and shrubs like ferns and climbers. Some tree species you may see are Lilly Pilly (Acmena smithii), Muttonwood (Rapanea howittiana) and Kanooka (Tristaniopsis laurina). You may even be lucky enough to spot a beautiful Lyrebird on your travels!
