Paynesville / Raymond Island
The perfect place to enjoy a lake break, Paynesville is set in the heart of the beautiful Gippsland Lakes, shouldered by Lake King and Lake Victoria. If you love the water, be it observational or more activity-based, then this is the ideal location for your next holiday. Canals wind throughout the town, while nearby, Raymond Island is a popular place to visit, with a car ferry providing easy access to this gorgeous landscape – also home to a large koala colony.
A short two-minute trip will bring you to the island, where you can enjoy scenic drives along the roads and bush tracks, as well as nearby Eagle Point and the Mitchell River Silt Jetties. With a 90 mile beach and coastal parks, there’s no better place to explore.
Meanwhile, for those who like getting wet, you can enjoy everything from water-skiing, sailing and kite boarding, to jet-skiing and sailboarding. There’s also a great choice when it comes to shopping and dining, so you can relax with family and friends at your leisure.
