METUNG
Metung is a small but busy village situated on a peninsula between Lake King and Bancroft Bay. Metung is a popular spot for holiday makers, with it's excellent marina facilities and a large, professional Golf course. The original inhabitants of the area—the Aboriginal Gunai or Kurnai people — told a story about an unusual group of rocks now found alongside the boardwalk in the Metung Marina on Bancroft Bay. This legend or fable indicates how greed will be punished. The legend goes that some fishermen made a good catch and ate the fish around their campfire. The fishermen, however, did not share their catch with their dogs, despite having more than enough to eat. As a punishment, the women, who were guardians of social law, turned the greedy men to stone. Originally there were three rocks found at this location that related to the legend, but two of them were destroyed during road works. The remaining Legend Rock is now protected.

 

RAYMOND ISLAND
Raymond Island is a small island in the Gippsland Lakes, across from the town of Paynesville. Straight to the point, it's full of Koalas. And, they're easy to see, in broad daylight. If you've never seen Koalas in their natural habitat, then this little road trip is for you. Koalas were first introduced to Raymond Island in 1953, by a man named Fred Jones. His grandchildren still live on the Island. The Raymond Island Ferry provides the only link between the island and the mainland, but also acts as an effective barrier to faster development of the island community. Travel is free. A ferry has run between Paynesville and Raymond Island since 1889, and has been an integral and sometimes controversial feature of life on Raymond Island. Some continue to call for the ferry to be replaced by a bridge, others believe the ferry is an integral part of life on the island. It takes about 1 hour to travel to Paynesville from Lakes Entrance.
