Lysterfield Lake


Lysterfield Lake

Lysterfield Lake is a very popular recreational spot. From canoeing, kayaking to sailing, spend the warm afternoons adventuring or relaxing by the waters edge. Take a refreshing swim in one of two protected swimming bays with sandy shores. Always ensure you are following accurate signage on the day. The lake offers unique opportunities to view waterbirds and shoreline habitat not viewable from land. For many, the lake is unexpectedly large with lots of surrounding mountain bike and walking tracks to explore. On a calm day, the lake is a great place to refine your skills on a stand-up paddle board or to splash around in the shallows.

Park gates are closed between dusk and dawn.
