Have Your Say: Camping and Access at Lake Tyers

Lake Tyers is one of Victoria’s fishing gems. Monster dusky flathead, abundant black bream and and assortment of marine species such as trevally, tailor and garfish are all exciting targets for us anglers.

Parks Victoria and Gunaikurnai Land and Waters Aboriginal Corporation (GLaWAC) are seeking final input into the Lake Tyers State Park Camping and Access Strategy. We are encouraging all fishers who fish and access Lake Tyers to check out the plan and find out what these proposed changes mean to your favourite spots.

Some of you launch your boats at the town ramp or maybe in the upper reaches at Nowa Nowa. Some of you may access the shores of the estuary via a number of access tracks or even enjoy camping on the shores of the estuary.

VRFish wants to hear from you how these proposed changes may affect your fishing and camping experience. Are you happy with the changes? Do proposed changes go too far or lock you out of places to camp and fish? Will places you have have been visiting for years be changed too much?
