The Lysterfield Lake Loop Track, Lysterfield park, starts from near the end of Horswood Rd, Narre Warren North, looping around the lake. Enjoy strolling around the lake, you will get the best views of all the water as you walk across the dam wall towards the end of the walk. Along the way you are likely to encounter many kangaroos grazing on the shoreline. Be mindful that the track can get muddy after rain and that the area is very popular, so you are unlikely to have the track to yourself. Be aware that you will be sharing the track with people riding mountain bikes. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
