A newcomer to Melbourne, I love exploring the city and sourrounds by day and night, finding bargains, learning new things, the great outdoors and Melbourne life in general.

Lake walk, cycle or sail
I recently discovered Lysterfield Park and regret not having discovered it sooner.

It has something for everyone- walking tracks, water sports, a beach area, barbeques, picnic areas, protected swimming bays, horse riding, an information centre, bike hire, a boat ramp and café. I also saw some 4W drive tour vehicles for those looking for some adventure.

The lake circuit should take about two hours although I got lost and it was closer to four hours. However, getting off the main track, I was lucky to see some kangaroos and an echidna. There is also plenty of birdlife.

It is a beautiful part of Melbourne so even if you are not a local, Lysterfield Park is well worth a visit to enjoy the scenery, relax or exert yourself with a swim, walk, kayak or sail. If you enjoy mountain biking, this is the place to come. There are approximately 20km of trails designated for mountain bike use including the 6.3km State Mountain Bike Course - home of the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games cross country mountain bike competition.

It is open all year round and there is plenty of parking. No dogs are allowed.
