Metung is a quiet waterfront town within the Gippsland lakes situated between Bairnsdale and Lakes Entrance, and is located on a thin peninsula of land that extends into Lake King.
Metung is very much a fishing and boating town and is surrounded on three sides by water, the town is well serviced by a number of marinas and jetties and is a short boat trip to Boxers Creek and Chinaman's Creek where pump out, fuel and water are available.
The town centre features a general store, a number of restaurants and cafes, several speciality shops, the Metung Yacht Club and is also home to the Metung Hotel, which dates back to 1873. Safe swimming is available at Shaving Point and near the jetty along Metung's western coast.
A good way to get an overview of Metung is to walk the length of the boardwalk which hugs the town's eastern coastline. Starting in the town centre, the boardwalk extends northwards with scenic water views of Bancroft Bay and several marinas along the coast.
