SEA LAKE

Welcome to Sea Lake

Sea Lake is the Heart of the Mallee and home of the Mallee Rally. It is the heart of the vast cereal growing food bowl of Victoria - a sight to behold in spring and at summer harvest time! It is far enough away from the city hustle and bustle yet fully connected with the touch of an internet finger and an easy drive highway! Sea Lakes attractions include include a brand new travelers rest located on the Calder’s highway a short walk from the shops.

EXPLORE

Just out of town is Lake Tyrrell a salt lake covering about 180 square kilometers. Lake Tyrrell is renowned as a start gazing area because the sky receives very little man made light.

Lake Tyrrell is a unique salt lake located 7kms north of Sea Lake. The Lake environment is host to Mallee reptiles, kangaroos, emus, white-faced chats, and an inland gullery.

To get to Lake Tyrrell, which is Victoria's largest salt lake covering 20,860 hectares, head north on the Calder Highway and it's well signposted on your right-hand side. There is a viewing platform and information bay.

The lake is quite ancient. It may have been formed by drifting sand blocking the passage of Tyrrell Creek. Over time it became a giant salt basin due to the flow of subterranean saline water and the run-off from Tyrrell Lake. It is dry most of the year although, at times, it may be covered by shallow water. Evaporation leaves a salt crust which is commercially extracted by the Cheetham Salt Works at the northern end of the lake. Over 100,000 tonnes of salt is extracted from the lake each year by Cheetham Salt. The first recorded salt harvest from Lake Tyrrell was in 1896.

Green Lake is a small and very attractive lake in the middle of a wheat-belt area with sandy beaches, powered camping sites, showers and lots of picnic/barbecue areas, bush walks, gum trees and shade. It is located 10km from Sea Lake along the road to Birchip and has powered sites and facilities for individuals or groups to meet or stay. The lake, which was dry for several years, has had water for the last couple of years and is suitable for swimming and limited boating. Bush walking can be enjoyed around the outskirts of the lake bed and in an adjacent reserve of mallee and pine-buloke woodland.

20km south-east of Sea Lake is the Mallee town of Berriwillock, approximately half way between Bendigo and Mildura on the Calder Highway, and 70 km West from Swan Hill and the Murray River.

Berriwillock is a small town of approx 200 people, and a renowned wheat growing and farming community. The Golden Crown Hotel, a General store, Café, Farm Supplies Retailer and Grain Storage Facilities, Bowling club, Tennis Club, Golf Club and a local Swimming Pool keep the small, North-Western Victorian town of Berriwillock on the map.
