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.
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.
