Metung, VIC

For a dose of style in the Gippsland Lakes, make your way to Metung. A great base for water sports enthusiasts, this tiny town features fine food and wine and a popular Sculpture Gallery.


The nearby Gippsland Lakes and sandy beaches mean there is over 400 square kilometres of water to explore. The village has a decidedly waterfront air and its compact size means you can enjoy leisurely walks along the water’s edge to see docked yachts and cruisers, as well as the many quaint wooden boats.

Fish for flathead, mulloway and bream in Bancroft Bay, off Shaving Point and local jetties. If you’d prefer someone else to catch your meal, head to one of the harbourside restaurants for high quality local food and wine.

Visit the shores of Bancroft Bay, where there is a large rock known to the indigenous population as the Wallung. Part of the Batatuk Cultural Trail, the rock is the subject of a variety of stories that you can discover at the Krowathunkooloong Keeping Place in Bairnsdale.

Metung is about four hours’ drive from Melbourne just near Lakes Entrance, off the Princes Highway from Swan Reach. You can explore the Tambo River, the Colquhoun State Forest, the Mitchell River National Park as well as Fairy Dell, Lake Bunga and the Den of Nargen.
