About Sea Lake:

Sea Lake is a wheat-belt town located south of the shores of Lake Tyrrell (the largest lake in Victoria). It is defined by the large grain silos on Railway Avenue and the railway line that transports the wheat which surrounds the settlement. Sea Lake is located in close proximity to several major national parks, including Wyperfeld National Park and Hattah-Kulkyne National Park. To the south of Sea Lake lies the fresh water lake – Green Lake. This lake has served the surrounding communities well over the years for water sports recreation and swimmers, boating, windsurfing and water skiing and is generous in offering a feed of fresh fish or yabbies and attracts tourists to the region.

The small rural township has all the basic amenities you need, bakery, supermarket and cafes and has a wonderful community with sporting events and varied interests. 2 hours away is the large regional cosmopolitan city of Mildura with access to airport.
