Metung – A Lakeside Getaway


Metung is a very peaceful village, between Melbourne and Sydney. It’s on the shores of the Gippsland Lakes. It is an upmarket holiday destination that’s perfect for a romantic getaway as well as a peaceful family holiday, or even a simple stop-over in a serviced apartment when travelling between the two major cities. Although the village gives the air of being a well-kept secret, there’s a good range of holiday homes in Metung, and you’ll have a fabulous time here whether you’re staying for a week or a fortnight.


A peaceful beachside haven


Metung is a lakeside community – and most of the activities on offer her revolve around the water. Swimming, sailing, and fishing are all popular, as well as bushwalking in the area around the lakes. Consequently, much of the most popular Metung holiday accommodation is right next to the beach.


The hinterland supports a small community of artists, and you should check out the galleries in Metung – the local art and craftwork makes excellent souvenirs.


Metung is also excellent for self-catering and picnic. If you can, do your shopping at the monthly farmers’ market, to make sure you get the very best of the area’s food and drink. Renting a Metung holiday villa with its own barbecue area allows you to cook Australian produce the Australian way. If the market isn’t on during your visit, then you can still find local delicacies at the bakery or from the chocolatier. Of course, you might prefer to eat out. There are several great restaurants that will suit every budget, and many of them specialise in local seafood. After you’ve finished eating, go to one of the local hotels for a drink, or have a few beers beside the lake.


The Metung community is very close knit, and organises a whole range of events during the year, particularly in the summer. Check the local ‘what’s on’ guide to find organised bike rides, sailing races, fishing competitions, barbecues and much more. Visitors are welcome to join in at most of these events, and they will give you a chance to speak to local people and make friends. Many holidaymakers find that this is much better and more satisfying than staying in an anonymous resort or big city!


Of course, you may want to come to Metung purely to chill out and enjoy some solitude.

The photo shows the entrance to be flat..And I trouble with the step..!!! Apart from that I totally recommend it for anyone who wants peace and quite.
