New Camping & Access Strategy for Lake Tyers State Park Released

Gunaikurnai Land and Waters Aboriginal Corporation (GLaWAC) and Parks Victoria have completed the Camping and Access Strategy for Lake Tyers State Park. Implementation of the Strategy is being kick-started by $1.72 million funding to formalise five campgrounds, as part of the Victorian Government’s $105.6 million Victoria’s Great Outdoors program.

Work on the strategy commenced in 2017, with public consultation conducted in 2018 and 2020. Feedback showed that overall people were happy with the proposed changes and supported the facility upgrades. Yet concern was raised over the proposed vehicle access changes. This feedback led to Parks and GLaWAC agreeing to not proceed with three of the seven proposed changes. However, four of these access changes remained in the final strategy to protect the important cultural heritage sites.

Changes to access included:

  • Change to Management Vehicle Only (MVO) tracks: Cameron’s Arm Track 2.
