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 5 out of 5 by from Great house and garden Fabulous house and garden. My husband, 2 kids, the dog and myself. A very peaceful setting. The house is very clean and tidy. Kitchen has all the utensils you'll ever need. Big bbq which we used each night. The garden is lovely and the yard is huge. Thank you very much. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded expectations We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sand House in Jan 2016, which we found comfortable, light and airy, well-equipped and pleasant all round. We appreciated the obvious effort that had gone into keeping the fence dog-proof, and we all enjoyed the garden (dog included!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delightful holiday house We thoroughly enjoyed this lovely holiday house at Paynesville. We loved the open plan, with an abundance of natural light and all the comforts of home. The kitchen was well stocked with appliances and utensils, that is if you want to cook on holidays, and the native garden added to the delightful ambience of the house. We would certainly return!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable House with everything you need We had a wonderful time at Sand House. The house was in a great location with a short walk to shops and water. It had everything we needed and more. I particularly loved the Australian native Garden and the north facing french doors that welcomed in the sun. We will stay here again.
