Lysterfield Park is truly an oasis nestled in the outer south-eastern suburbs of Melbourne and offers our little explorers the chance to explore both bush and water play.
There is so much to explore at Lysterfield Lake! Bushy walks where you can spot kangaroos, sandy beaches for swimming on hot days and wetlands full of noisy water birds. You can follow the lake circuit trail and check out the beautiful plants or you can sit on a grassy patch and enjoy a quiet picnic with friends. It’s a great place to get active as you can sail, kayak or canoe in the lake, while runners love the network of gravel bush tracks. It is also home to one of Australia’s busiest mountain biking trail networks. The Lysterfield Park Mountain Bike Trails and the State Mountain Bike course offers 20 kilometres of trails catering for riders of all ages and ability.
Lysterfield lake is full of amazing natural wonders but also has all the convenient facilities on site. Lots of parking, bbq’s, toilets and park benches.
Lysterfield Park is accessible from Horswood Road that takes a turn from Belgrave-Hallam Road. Opening hours are between 8am and 8pm during daylight savings time. At all other times, the park closes at around 7pm.
