Overview

Lysterfield Park is a beautiful spot not far from Melbourne, offering a range of recreational activities. There are electric/gas barbeques, picnic tables and toilet facilities. Relax and have lunch in the picnic ground under the shade of the spotted gums or take part in something more heavy duty! There are many tracks through the parks suitable for walking, jogging and cycling. It is also well known as a great place for mountain biking. 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. Choose from easy family trails for all to enjoy around the lake and parkland, a range of flowing single trails through established plantations, or steep and technical sections of trail through rocky landscapes. Lysterfield Lake is very popular for canoeing, sailing, paddle boating and surf skiing. There are a number of walking tracks around the lake. It is also a haven for native birds, mammals and reptiles. Swimming is permitted within the two swimming bays but the water can be quite murky and children should be supervised at all times. Non-powered boating is permitted on the lake. The park is open from 8am to 7pm during daylight saving time.

Nothing spectacular to expect in terms of scenery but if you r a hiker or biker 🚵‍♀️ and live within 15 kms, coming here would be greater but no compelling reason for those further afield

Yes there are a few as the other person said but in the Summer months have to get there early to secure one as the place is popular and gets busy.

Probably best to contact the local council who can advise you about whether this is ok or not. I don't see it being a problem though
