Lilydale Lake (Lilydale)




This attractive and popular lake is a shallow (2 to 2.5m deep) flood-retarding basin located on Olinda Creek, south of Lilydale. The Lillydale Lake and Park were officially opened to the public in July 1990. The Park covers an area of over 100 hectares.

Come along and have a picnic or barbecue and then take a walk around the 28 hectare lake or just lie back and watch the clouds roll by while the children enjoy the sandy beaches or fantastic playground. There are 10 kilometres of shared trail at the Park, so if you don't feel like walking - bring your bicycle along and take a ride around.

Dogs are allowed within the Park and certain areas allow for dogs to be allowed off their leads.

Facilities include:
  • Electric BBQ's (no coins required)
  • Picnic Shelters
  • 10 kilometres Shared Trail
  • Heritage Trail
  • Fishing
  • Wetlands
  • Parking for 250 vehicles
  • Monster Playground
  • Boat Launching and trailer parking
  • Park Lighting
  • Public Toilets with disability access
  • Community Room for Hire

It is possible to catch fish in the lake. Rainbow trout are regularly stocked by Fisheries Victoria and there is also redfin, carp, roach and eels. No fishing is permitted on the beach areas; however most of the shoreline is accessible to anglers.

Opening Hours:


The Lillydale Lake is open at all times.

Cost:


Free access.

Review:


The lake area has some reasonable walking tracks and a really great playground. The lake is not suited to swimming. The number of BBQs, shelters and tables seemed to be fairly limited.

Not enough shade - scorching on a hot day. You can swim in the lake - more like paddling though. it'd be better with canoes or blow up boats.
