About the Waterway
Lake Tyers is located on the south coast of Victoria, east of Lakes Entrance, approximately 350 kms (4 hours travel time) by road from the Melbourne CBD, accessed by the Princes Highway via the major tourist town of Lakes Entrance.
Lake Tyers is a small waterway which is generally closed to Bass Strait, although on occasions is opened by prevailing weather and water levels or assisted by man. The lake is a popular tourist destination for holiday makers and anglers alike. Most of the Lakes and extending arms are navigable by recreational vessels.
