Metung

Boatingyachtonbackwatercouple-330pxWThe tranquil village of Metung has long been a favourite for holiday-makers. While the main activities involve boating and fishing, Metung is also known for its scenic walks, good local food, monthly farmers market and unique galleries with a coastal flair. Enjoy the scenic drive along the river into Metung and even stop to throw in a line.

Embark on a cruise aboard one of the many boats that travel between Metung and Lakes Entrance, learn how to sail or hire a boat and explore the lakes and waterways yourself. Yachts and cruisers are available for hire for overnight stays, allowing visitors to tie up in some of the protected creeks and jetties that abound in the Gippsland Lakes system. The Metung Boardwalk offers a leisurely stroll around this charming village right along the foreshore, then find a cafe to sit and enjoy the view with a glass of one of local wines.

For further information or brochures visit our local Visitor Information Centres online or call in.
