Lake Tyers Camp & Caravan Park

Lake Tyers Camp & Caravan Park is owned and run on the behalf of the Uniting Church in Australia. The site was leased from the Cross family between 1948 and 1954. In 1954 a Committee of Management bought the property on behalf of the Methodist Church. Initially used for Easter, Youth camps and Minister retreats, it was then opened to public at Christmas. The park is now open all year round and welcomes the general public.

Lake Tyers was named after C.J. Tyers who was a Lands Commissioner in Gippsland in the 1840’s and later became the Surveyor – General.

It has been described as ‘The Pearl of the Gippsland Lakes’. There is also an aboriginal Legend which tells how one day the sea came inland to rest amongst the wooded hillsides and fell asleep and is still there today.

Descriptive names and legends give only a glimpse of the attractions of this picturesque lake with its deep water arms winding enticingly through the densely wooded valleys.

Water birds shelter and feed on the lake and its sandy dunes. Within the waters of the lake, fish abound and when in season, prawns provide many a holiday maker with a delightful meal gleaned from the lake in a few short hours on a pleasant summer evening.

You can swim or boat in the lake or, if you prefer, walk over the beach and enjoy the surf of the 90 mile beach.

  • What a beautiful spot. Didn’t feel like a caravan park at all. Had a rustic home feel but incredible bathroom facilities that were better than any caravan park I’ve been to. Close to the beach and lake. Close to general store and tavern. Hopefully I’ll get back here one day.

  • This is a top caravan park with the best access to all amenities at Lake Tyers Beach. Right above the beach, the lake, The Water Wheel Tavern and the General restaurant.

  • Have stayed in the cabins many times. Views are amazing, we once saw a whale from the balcony! Facilities are pretty good as well.

  • What a lovely little spot right on the beach. We booked in here as a stop over but could have stayed a few days. The staff were super friendly on the phone and when we checked in. The bathrooms were spacious and so clean. The camp sites were very big and lovely and green. The park is right on the beach and lake and there are a few nice walks around. There was only one cafe and pub but we didn't stay long enough to try them. Worth a visit.
