Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed at Sea Lake and spent a few sunrises and sunsets at Lake Tyrrell. Spectacular! Gumboots are a must if there is water in the lake, and make sure you your camera!

Come to Lake Tyrell at various times. We came in mid-afternoon, sunset and the next day for sunrise. The lake puts on quite a show and you see it in various lights. Park down at the second car park beside the lake and to get away from the crowds walk to the left along the shore line a couple hundred metres (you'll also find the water levels are shallower here if you want to walk out into the lake - gumboots advised). We found most people arrived about 30 minutes to sunset or 30 minutes before sunrise, however sunrise is definitely a lot quieter. We only had 3 other people with us during sunrise so it was quiet and spectacular to see the amazing sunrise. Lake levels vary, and wind levels vary too o don't always think that the day is always going to be instagram perfect - you're at the mercy of nature.

Lake Tyrrell is definitely worth a visit as its Victoria's largest salt lake also many great opportunities for photography. Definitely need to do some research on working out the best time year to visit. Drivering into Sea Lake you will see roadside signs pointing out the main viewing area. Follow the road you will come to a large parking area with a platform viewing area with toilets. Read the signs as you not allowed to pass this point if driving large camping vehicles. If it does not apply to you can drive to the next parking area which is close to and has great views of the lake from here.

Lake Tyrrell sign, Sky Lounge, Shelter and boardwalk. are also at this point.
l did not read the sign right and park my car at the start of the trail which was at the main platform viewing area. Not a big deal took me about 20 minutes to walk and take some photos along the way.

​Lake Tyrrell is something special these days, it's not that it wasn't always special ... it's only being recognised and appreciated on a global level lately. The sky mirrors the water in this area and the vibrant colours meet .. pink salt, vivid blue skies and white fluffy clouds.

The indigenous people of Australia always knew it was special - for them it was a meeting place to trade and for ceremonial reasons.

What is there these days for tourists begs belief! I recall when they had a lookout built and I took my father there ​in August 2019 he was so impressed that a lookout had been built and could not believe people had made it a destination. ( he grew up in the Mallee region) Fast forward to this recent trip and I was there solo... imagine what dad would be thinking if he saw it now! Not even four years on and there is a new lookout built - the old one has been demolished. There are toilets at the site, information boards and then ... you can drive out to the lake to sit on the lounge, or walk out onto the magnificent boardwalk.

This is a very special place and if you have an opportunity to visit ... don't miss it.

Stayed at Lake Tyrell.accomodation on the way to Mildura with the principle aim of taking photos of the sunrise and sunset. Worth the effort even getting up early for the sunrise.Go at least 30 mins before sunrise to get the best photos.
The accomodation was excellent value for money.Very clean,compact but everything you needed for a comfortable stay.The communal courtyard set up had everything you needed if you wanted to cook a barbie or prepare breakfast.Staff where very friendly and I suggest you book directly with the venue for a good price.I would definitely recommend this place to friends and large groups.

Our tour guide Julie was fantastic, informative and her knowledge of the indigenous people was fascinating.
The accommodation, A1 Sea Lake Silo art house personally owned by Julie with was pet friendly for my fur buddies. The B&B villa was comfortable with all the modern comforts and sleeps up 10 people comfortably. Free WiFi and all the pay per view channels.

Spectacular landscape, superbly maintained, great infrastructure. Ten times saltier than seas water. Favourite breeding groups of seagulls! The walk from the major view station to the point is 1.3km and well worth it versus driving

The sunset for us was a bit of a fizzer but the half hour before was very good.
Having missed the sunset we did get a moon rise though. We also did get a hint of pink on the lake. The area is well set up with roads and viewing points are in good positions.

Such an amazing place, peaceful, tranquil, beautiful, quiet ...
Visited a couple of times, one day in the afternoon and the following day for sunrise.
Sunrise was even more beautiful and tranquil and had fewer people. Noticeably the water level was about six inches early morning whereas it was just an inch the previous day in the noon
Will definitely be back here to view sunrise and for stargazing
