Tyrone Foreshore

The western end of Rye Front Beach encompasses an area that once formed part of the very first pastoral run known as ‘Tyrone’, which stretched from just beyond Cain Road to Canterbury Jetty Road.  Owen and Sarah Cain arrived at ‘Port Phillip’ in 1841 – just six years after Melbourne had been founded by John Batman.  By 1842 they had established their ‘Tyrone’ run which was named after the northern Irish county from which they had come. This sandy stretch of beach is so picturesque, offering many spaces on which to sit on the sand and absorb the beauty – as well as the many fun activities that beaches have to offer.  A small boat ramp can be found just up the beach providing access to the waters of Port Phillip Bay for smaller sized water craft. The white, sandy beaches are complimented by the iconic and colourful boat houses – and should the sun become too much, why not explore the delightful trail that meanders its way through the shady sand dunes that line the shore . . .
