Stop Press During October & November the main ferry is out of service. A free water taxi will take passengers across to the island and the free community bus will drive you to our house. Otherwise we can come and pick you up but we have limited fuel during the outage. During this time visitors will need to park their cars on the mainland where EG Shire has provided a secure car park. We apologise for any inconvenience caused, however we see it as an added bit of adventure for your holiday.

Tudor Style self contained cottage attached to main house, catches the afternoon sun, perfect for winter escapes. Absolute water frontage, 10 acre garden flowing to the beach and lake. Secluded off a beautiful long winding driveway. Public jetty berth. Bushwalkers/birdwatchers paradise. Kayaks and bikes are provided.

We do not allow pets due to sensitive nature of wildlife.

The GardenCottage caters for 4 and the Beach Cottage, 6 people. The two cottages are interconnecting to cater for larger groups. Both bedrooms of each cottage are upstairs with very small bathroom, kitchen, lounge downstairs. We have a lovely hexagonal Gazebo outside, ideal for meditation or reading or an ideal space to enjoy the outside from a cosy space.

The ferry runs every 20 minutes from the Raymond Island side and more often at peak times and stops at midnight. Return cost is $12.There are no cafes/shops on the island, however we can provide a gourmet breakfast basket upon request, from $20 for two. Includes eggs from our heritage hens, home-made jams and granola, sourdough bread, greens and herbs from the garden.

Raymond Island is located 200m across McMillan Strait from Paynesville, Victoria's boating capital and is in the centre of Australia's largest lake system, with canals carving their way through town, offering unique waterside locations. The island offers a truly unique Australian experience with its 1.2km koala trail starting in the ferry park.

Fish for black bream or mullet, water ski, jet ski, windsurf, kayak or just swim. Watch out for the dolphins Stroll along the boardwalk or stop for a bite to eat at the many eateries including waterfront dining. Explore the Mitchell River silt jetties as they stretch for 8km into Lake King, the longest in the world.

We offer as much assistance as you required to make your stay as comfortable as possible or complete privacy as you choose.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful cottage house We enjoyed our stay at the Swan Cove, it was peaceful, and relaxing. With the lake just metres away, the walks along the lake was nice. Riding around the island with the push bikes provided was great, lots of wildlife to see especially koalas and kangaroos. Will come back for sure! Perhaps in summer for Kayaking and fishing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tranquil and full of wildlife. Swan Cove is a lovely place to stay. The owners are particularly delightful and very helpful. This is our second stay. Raymond Island is a great place to enjoy seeing wildlife especially koalas. The cottages whilst not modern are warm and comfortable.
