Now Open! Pettman’s Beach in Lake Tyers State Park

Monday 28 October, 2013

Parks Victoria is pleased to announce the reopening of the Pettman’s Beach visitor site and campground at Lake Tyers State Park in East Gippsland. The popular beach access site and campground has been closed since June due to inundation by flood waters.

Parks Victoria Ranger Katherine Mullett said during periods of sustained high rainfall, Pettman’s Beach Campground is prone to flooding and it can take considerable time for the waters to subside.

‘It is a natural process and due to the ongoing spring rains we have encountered, this year it has taken longer for the waters to subside” said Ms Mullett. When the water is high the visitor site becomes muddy and waterlogged, and the access road is sometimes flooded.

“We would also like to highlight to visitors that camping at Lake Tyers State Park is not permitted within 50 metres of the water’s edge to protect vegetation and water quality”, said Ms Mullett.

The Pettman’s Beach site is now accessible for those wanting to access the ocean beach for fishing and the campground is open. No booking is required for camping.
