Set out for adventure on Gippsland's waterways from lively Paynesville. This charming village is surrounded by lakes on three sides, with canals and inlets providing plentiful sheltered moorings for boats.


Paynesville is the region's boating capital. Anglers, windsurfers, jet skiers, and water skiers flock to the town to take to the water. Waterski the lakes, fish for black bream and mullet, or watch for dolphins playing in the water. Explore the Mitchell River silt jetties, the largest silt jetties in the world. There are good views from Eagle Point Bluff and a vehicle track that provides a closer view and leads to some fine fishing spots.
