Show me! Lake Tyers Beach Tides
What is the tide? another handy reference

The tides don't follow the moon exactly, there is a slight delay as the moon is pulling the water around, like a phase delay. Also, the highest tides are about three days after the New and Full moon.

Spume at Lake Tyers Beach Don't forget the locality's tides are moderated by the swell.  Prevaling winds or storms can enhance or moderate tidal activity. The movement in and out of the Lakes systems to the sea (when they are open) are also effected by the prevailing winds and swell (both duration and time).  This can cause considerable deviations from the theoretical tide chart predictions.

This shows the common pattern of two tidal peaks in a day, though remember that the repeat time is not exactly twelve hours but 12.4206 hours. The two peaks are not equal: the twin tidal bulges beneath the moon and on the far side of the earth are aligned with the moon.
