Things to do in Paynesville and nearby

A short walk, cycle or drive takes you into the village of Paynesville, where you will find cafes and restaurants, two supermarkets and a range of shops.
The Gippsland Lakes system includes three large lakes with 600 square kilometers of navigable waterways. Paynesville sits between Lake King and Lake Victoria offering sandy swimming beaches for the kids, plus a public wharf, jetties and beaches for fishing. The sheltered waters of Newlands Arm are ideal for a range of watersports such as water skiing, kayaking, canoeing, yachting, or windsurfing.
Visit the koalas on Raymond Island. Raymond Island is a wonderfully natural bushy island, separated from Paynesville by water and housing a passionate community living a quieter life. It can only be accessed by ferry or boat.
Just outside Paynesville at Eagle Point Bluff you can view the famous Lake King silt jetties. They are formed by sediment of the rise and fall of the Mitchell River as it flows into the lake, and are the second-longest in the world!
If you have a boat it's only minutes to Raymond Island, Picnic Arm, Duck Arm, Rotamah Island or Ocean Grange with access to 90 miles of pristine surf beach. The resorts of Metung and Lakes Entrance are a little further, and there are miles of rivers to explore by boat, which can also be hired.
Visit the Paynesville boatyards in Slip Road.
There is a strong art culture around the Gippsland Lakes. There is designer jewellery, sculpture, prints and glass art. Visit the studios near Nungurner to see local artists at work or purchase items.
There are many antique museums and shops in the area, such as the Bairnsdale Clock Museum with over 600 clocks.
Wineries abound in the area, such as Nicholson River Winery, Ensay Winery, Bullant Brewery, Wyanga Park Winery and Lightfoot & Sons Wines. You can follow the Twin Rivers Farm Food and Wine Trail to learn more.


Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great place for families Sand House is very spacious and comfortable, with a lovely deck and well fenced garden to the rear. The kitchen had everything we could want - even a Kenwood mixer! Great central location for trips to the surrounding area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent dog friendly place to stay My partner and I had a lovely week staying with our 2 older large dogs whilst catching up with family and friends in the area and touring around. It was great to be able to have the dogs with us and the yard was very safe and secure for them. I loved being able to walk them around to the foreshore and the close proximity of the house to everything. Paynesville is a great base for touring around the area. The house was very clean and provided every convenience you could need which was great. I would definitely recommend it to all of my friends especially for those wanting a dog friendly escape and will be booking again having found this special retreat.
