Venture four hours east of Melbourne to the end of the Great Alpine Road and find a picture-book village stretching along a narrow sandy peninsula on the shores of the Gippsland Lakes. 

White sails and reels

Boat lovers and summer waterskiers are drawn to Metung's relaxed village lifestyle. Join Riviera Scenic on a tranquil cruise or hire your own yacht from Riviera Nautic and explore the gentle waters of the Gippsland Lakes. Small runabouts and speedboats are also available for hire. 

Anglers descend all year round to make the most of Metung’s excellent fishing spots. Bust out the rod and reel and try your hand at hooking bream, tailor, flathead, King George whiting and prawns during the summer months.

On the table

Dine out on fresh seafood and local wines at eateries across town. Choose from an excellent variety of waterfront restaurants and cafes, or find a sunny spot opposite the village green to enjoy a picnic. The kids will enjoy watching the pelicans eat their lunch outside the Metung Pub everyday at midday.

Finish the day with a stroll along the water's edge at sunset and watch the sailing boats glide by.

Creative spirits

Metung's natural beauty attracts many artists. Visit farm studios, gardens and galleries to view locally crafted sculptures, jewellery and paintings.
