Lake Tyers State Park extends from Lake Tyers Beach to Mount Nowa Nowa.  Tall eucalypt forests surround the northern shores of Lake Tyers, and a thin sand spit divides the lake from the ocean.

As well as fishing in the lake and on the Ninety Mile Beach, Lake Tyers State Park offers a number of areas for picnics, beautiful bushwalks, forest drives and basic bush camping.

How to get there

Lake Tyers State Park is situated about 20kms northeast of Lakes Entrance. The main access into the park is via Burnt Bridge Road or Tyers House Road. These are unsealed roads.

Gunaikurnai and Victorian Government Joint Management Plan

The Gunaikurnai and Victorian Government Joint Management Plan was approved by the Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change in July 2018.

The plan guides the partnership between the Gunaikurnai people and the Victorian Government in the joint management of the ten parks and reserves for which the Gunaikurnai have gained Aboriginal Title as a result of their 2010 Recognition and Settlement Agreement with the Victorian Government.

The plan provides the strategic and operational direction for the ongoing management of these parks and reserves and supersedes any former approved management plans for them.

Aboriginal Traditional Owners


The Gunaikurnai Traditional Owners' strong connection with the land has been legally recognised in a settlement agreement that enables them to jointly manage 10 parks in Eastern Victoria, including Lake Tyres State Park.


Parks Victoria acknowledges the Aboriginal Traditional Owners of Victoria - including its parks and reserves. Further information is available from Aboriginal Affairs Victoria AAV and Native Title Services Victoria
