After launching your boat, cruiser or yacht into the water at Metung, the Gippsland Lakes offers you 400 square kilometres of pristine waterways to explore.

Barrier Landing

Set your course east around Boole Poole, pass Pelican Island, continue toward Rigby Island and arrive at Barrier Landing near Lakes Entrance. There is a public jetty here where you can tie up. Enjoy swimming, water skiing, relax on the beach and picnic. Walk just a short distance over the dunes and find the Ninety Mile Beach where you can try your luck surf fishing.

Raymond Island, Paynesville and Newlands Arm

Head west from Metung and arrive at Raymond Island and the holiday township of Paynesville. Newlands Arm is a bay well protected from wind with a nice beach. This is popular spot for water skiing and jet skiing.

Ocean Grange and Bunga Arm

Cruise south from Paynesville across Lake Victoria and arrive at Ocean Grange. The well protected waterway running further East is Bunga Arm. Moor your boat at one of the jetties, any of the mooring posts or anchor anywhere along the sandy shore. The Ninety Mile Beach is just a short distance over the sand dunes.

For those who wish to stay and camp at Bunga Arm, there are numerous un-powered camp sites along the shore. Each site is numbered. You must book and pay in advance with Parks Victoria. Take your own fresh water. Non-flush toilets are provided at each campground and camp fires can be lit in the designated fireplaces.
