Tyers Park

Covering 1,810 hectares of forest in the foothills to the north of the Latrobe Valley, Tyers Park features the spectacular Tyers Gorge where the river has carved a winding course between the steep forested slopes.

The park has an abundance of diverse wildflowers and the birdlife, making it a favourite destination for naturalists. Outcrops of limestone and conglomerate are of geological interest. The limestone contains both plant and animal fossils.

Popular activities at Tyers Park include scenic drives, bushwalks, picnicking, swimming, fishing and nature study.

Spring is the main wildflower season and a good time to visit, although the park has plenty to offer throughout the year.

Seasonal road closure during winter.
