Lake Tyrrell is Victoria’s largest salt lake and is especially popular with visitors from China – Victoria’s largest market for inbound tourists, which is expected to contribute up to 60 per cent of tourism spend by 2025.
When complete, the $2.58 million project is expected to boost the lake’s current visitation numbers from 42,000 a year to more than 192,000 by 2025.
The project, a priority for the Mallee Regional Partnership will deliver a range of new facilities including a boardwalk, interpretive signage, walking tracks, a viewing area, accessible toilets, waste management infrastructure, and parking with turnaround space for buses.
As visitation to the area increases along with demand for accommodation, new businesses will be established in surrounding towns like Sea Lake to service the growing market.
The Lake Tyrrell Tourism Infrastructure Development Project is funded by the Labor Government’s flagship Regional Tourism Infrastructure Fund, which is investing in iconic regional tourism projects that create world-class tourism experiences, support jobs and boost the regional economy.
