Last February my parents and I went to Metung, a tiny village in the Gippsland Lakes in eastern Victoria. It is such a beautiful, isolated place. There’s no passing traffic so it’s very quiet and is a bit of a mecca for families and retirees. It’s the sort of place where you have to relax, unwind and maybe try some fishing.

From the internet we booked one nights accommodation at the The Moorings at Metung in a two-bedroom two-storey townhouse. It was a great apartment and we wished we were staying more than one night. I’d love to come back and stay there again. Although the village is small and everything is pretty much within walking distance, the Moorings was only about 100m from the village green and the few restaurants there.

We stayed in the 2nd townhouse from the left.

For dinner we went to the Metung Hotel which overlooks the lakes.

Entree of smoked salmon bruschetta

King George Whiting and chips. This is my favourite type of fish but is normally quite expensive.

After dinner we walked around to the bay to watch the sun set. It had been a warm day so it was really nice after dinner.
