Steeped in a history of boats, fishing and gentle lifestyles, the town is both incredibly romantic and fabulous for families. Stroll along the boardwalk, watch yachts sail by, set up a deckchair for a spot of fishing, dine in or take your meal outdoors, or take a dip in Lake King - there are so many ways to enjoy the town and its surrounding waterways. It is not uncommon to observe a pod of dolphins feeding in the waters, including the Burrunan dolphin known only to inhabit the Gippsland Lakes and Melbourne’s Port Phillip Bay. The Village Green is the venue for the Metung Farmers’ Market, held on the second Saturday of each month, where local in-season produce is showcased for all to buy. Whether it is a fantastic sunrise over Bancroft Bay or a glass of wine as the sun sets spectacularly over Lake King, Metung allows you to enjoy both ends of the day and everything in between. Visitors are able to choose from a wide selection of accommodation in Metung with motel, bed and breakfast, cabin, self-contained apart- ments, townhouses and houses both in the village and surrounding areas. HOLIDAY VILLAS With accommodation to suit all tastes and budgets, each villa at Metung Holiday Villas is fully self-contained with reverse-cycle air conditioning and private balconies with outdoor settings, most with barbecues. Take a dip in the covered heated pool or watch as the children splash in the paddling pool. Beneath a canopy of beautiful trees is a centrally located children’s playground to burn off some of that extra holiday energy. And don’t forget your furry friends while you’re on holidays. Metung Holiday Spend time in Metung to experience some of East Gippsland’s simplest pleasures. Photo: Visit Victoria Villas is a pet friendly facility.
