Waterfront wonder 

From every angle, Metung is flawless. Wake up to the gentle lake breeze adjourning a new day. Take a stroll down to the village square along the foreshore boardwalk for your double shot latte and admire the Burrunan dolphins in the Lake. The village, based at the end of a peninsula and surrounded by water, is quiet and content. You cannot help but feel yourself relax in the surroundings. 

While the main activities involve boating and fishing, Metung is also known for its scenic walks, local food, monthly farmers market and unique galleries with a coastal flair. The family will also be kept busy with family-friendly beaches, a splash park and adventure playground all located within walking distance of the village square. Make sure you enjoy the scenic drive along the Tambo River into Metung and even stop to throw a line.
