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 a lovely place to stay We were so surprised by the lovely garden, private and leafy. Our little dog had fun exploring. The house was clean and comfortable with interesting furniture pieces. We love Paynesville at any time and our stay in Sand House added to the experience. Thanks Trina and your team.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great place, just as described We had a great stay here for 4 nights over the Easter break. Nice location only a short walk to the Paynesville shops and cafes. The house was just as described and lived up to our expectations. It was clean and well presented, with all of the kitchen facilities needed if you want to stay in and cook at home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic dog-friendly property! We absolutely loved Sand House - it was perfect for us! We loved the open plan living, big kitchen table with comfy chairs, soft pillows, great shower (plenty of hot water), spacious bathroom with Tastic heater, and air con (it was hot when we stayed so we definitely needed it). Most important of all for us though, the property is dog-friendly, and our dog was allowed inside! The spacious backyard was fantastic for him! All the appliances we used worked and were in good condition and all communications with Trina the property owner ran smoothly. Thanks Trina - if only more property owners were like you and willing to allow pets! All 3 of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay (first time to Paynesville also - what a gem of a town!) and look forward to visiting again in future!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Comfortable House We loved the house as did our two dogs. It was great that some care had been taken to make the backyard dog proof, and we enjoyed the native garden.
