Sea Lake

Sea Lake

      town, Mallee district, northwest Victoria, Australia, on the south shore of Lake Tyrrell (a salt-encrusted depression). The site was discovered in 1838 and was named by an early settler of the Port Phillip area, Edward Eyre. The lake's sealike impression inspired the town's name.

      Located on the Calder Highway and a rail line running southeast to Melbourne (195 miles [314 km] southeast), the town serves a region of wheat, sheep, and irrigated farming (especially dairying and the fatting of lambs). An extraction plant harvests the salt deposits of Lake Tyrrell. Pop. (2001) locality, 635.
