Metung is a small town of  about one thousand permanent residents and is located on a narrow peninsula of land separating Bancroft Bay and Lake King. Situated in East Gippsland, Metung is ideally placed with the surrounding protected waters of the Gippsland Lakes and a comfortable three to four hour drive from Melbourne.

The primary activities are boating and fishing, but the area is also known for it’s scenic trails. You can also visit one of the area’s many galleries, the food trails, wineries or hire a boat and explore the Ninety Mile Beach, Chinaman’s Creek, Boxes Creek or Nungurner. Embark on a cruise aboard one of the boats that leave Metung and travel to Lakes Entrance where you can see the entrance to the lakes system or hire a day-boat and travel to Barrier Landing where you can walk across to Ninety Mile Beach.

It is not uncommon to observe a group of dolphins feeding in the bay or nearby channels. Fish from a boat or from one of the many available jetties on Bancroft Bay or soak up some sun on the shores of Lake King where there is a safe swimming beach for adults and children.

The Village Green is the venue for the famous Metung Farmers Market held on the second Saturday of each month where local in-season produce is showcased for all to buy. Explore the village and its shops and restaurants or just enjoy a drink at the famous waterfront Metung Hotel. Watch the pelican feeding daily at noon in front of the hotel.

Whether it is a fantastic sunrise over Bancroft Bay or you are enjoying a glass of wine as the sun sets spectacularly over Lake King you are always able to enjoy both ends of the day and everything in between.

You may also hire yachts and cruisers for overnight stays where you can tie up in some of the quiet creeks or jetties that abound in the protected waters of the lakes system.

There are always new places to find, visit and experience in the Gippsland Lakes so come along and be a part of this wonderful region which is also only two hours from the Victorian ski slopes & high country.
