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.

Great holiday getaway
What a great house with all the comforts needed!!
We absolutely loved our stay - the property was clean and well looked after. The fireplace with lots of wood supplied was an added bonus. We were made to feel welcome from the first instance of contact with the owner and appreciated that the property was so pet friendly.
Seriously a gem of a holiday house and I would not hesitate to recommend it!

Great holiday house. Wonderful service.
This was nice house with plenty of space. Kitchen was well equipped. We never expected this many spices in any holiday house. Great collection of spices. Rooms were very comfortable. Very clean and tidy. There were couple of issues that was beyond the control of the house owner. When I sent her an SMS I didn't even expect them to be addressed during our three days stay (they were not significant issues... FYI types of issues only and I just wanted to let them know). But the owner called back within minutes. Even though I mentioned that they are not significant issues and we can live without them she sent someone within half an hour to address & resolve them. We were really impressed. This is wonderful service. Thanks a million for looking after us. The best attitude anyone can expect from their host in a holiday house. We will love to come back to this property again and again.

The Sand House was the perfect place to stay. It is well equipped and very comfortable and clean. It is also in a great location, within walking distance to shops and the water. We would definitely hope to stay there again when we next travel to beautiful Paynesville.

Smart & Comfortable
We spent a lovely, relaxed weekend in quiet surrounds. The rear garden was a delight, with the local bird life and the house itself had all we could want in both comfort and amenities. All that and only a stroll to the Raymond Island ferry, local shops & cafes.

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.
