There is lots to explore on the large lake. Go canoeing or kayaking to view waterbirds and habitat that can't be seen from land. On a calm day, the lake is a perfect place to refine your stand-up paddle boarding.
Lysterfield Lake also offers two swimming beaches, both located near Beach Carpark at the southern end of the lake. The lake is not patrolled by lifeguards and children should be supervised at all times. Due to unpredictable depths and waterbird habitat, swimming is not permitted elsewhere in the lake.
The 82ha lake is a great place for non-powered boating and sailing. Boat trailer parking is available and there is a boat launching and rigging zone. Model boating is allowed, but only non-powered craft can be used.
Go sailing on monohull boats up to 5 metres long or multi-hull boats up to 4.3 metres long. Lysterfield Sailing Club welcomes new members. Call Parks Victoria on 13 1963 for more information.
As rivers, lakes and reservoirs are natural environments, you may encounter hazards. Follow our water safety advice to make sure your day out at Lysterfield Park is a safe and enjoyable one.c
