Metung - mobile map

Metung

Venture four hours east of Melbourne to find this picture-book village, stretching along a narrow sandy peninsula in the Gippsland Lakes. Strolling along the water's edge and watching the sailing boats glide by is a local sunset tradition.

Boating and fishing
Boat lovers and summer waterskiers are drawn to Metung's relaxed village lifestyle. Take a cruise and glimpse birdlife and kangaroos grazing by the water, or feed the pelicans. Small runabouts are also available for hire. Metung and surrounds also offers excellent fishing – try your hand at hooking bream, tailor, flathead, King George whiting and prawns in summer.

Food and wine
Head to a harbourside restaurant for quality local seafood and wine. Pick an excellent restaurant for a fancy meal or find a sunny spot opposite the village green for a relaxed lunch and great coffee.

Contemporary art
Metung's natural beauty attracts many artists. Visit farm studios, gardens and galleries to view locally crafted pieces by Kate Shone, Max Nicholson and Daniel Jenkins.
