Our Beautiful Village

general_store.jpg Metung is a beautiful place to stay. A tiny village set in the heart of the Gippsland Lakes with its history steeped in boats, fishing and gentle lifestyles. A village that has always drawn those seeking a special holiday. It's a place that gives you time to recall the simple pleasures of life.

Stroll along the boardwalk and watch the yachts sail by, or set up your deckchair for a spot of fishing. Dine in the sunshine, or swim at the beach. And there are lots of ways to explore the surrounding waterways: bring your own boat, hire one here, or join a cruise.
