About Lake Tyrrell 

The scenery at Lake Tyrrell is unlike anything else. You need to experience it to believe it.  From breath taking sunrises and sunsets to the image of the clouds actually kissing the water, it is truly breathtaking.

The lake covers approximately 20,860 hectares making it Victoria’s largest inland salt lake and attracts tourists from all over the world. The lake is dry most of the year.

Only 70km from Swan Hill the lake is host to mallee reptiles, kangaroos, emus, white-faced chats and an inland gullery. The Indigenous Boorong people of Sea Lake were famous astronomers, using constellations to decipher seasons and tell dreamtime stories.

The ancient lake may have been formed by drifting sand blocking the passage of Tyrrell Creek. Over time it has became a giant salt basin due to the flow of subterranean saline water and the run-off from Tyrrell Lake.

Small islands in the lake are used as a breeding ground by thousands of seagulls. The saltbush and samphire around the lagoon support a range of wildlife while the lunette to the east contains significant Aboriginal relics.

Make sure you do not miss this natural beauty when visiting Swan Hill.
