Paynesville - Cities, Towns and Localities
Located in the heart of the Gippsland Lakes region and calling itself ‘the Boating Capitol of Victoria’, the holiday resort town of Paynesville is surrounded by water on three sides, with direct access to Lake King just to the north and Lake Victoria, just to the south. Formerly a shipbuilding town, Paynesville today is renown for its water sports, windsurfing, water skiing, jet skiing, and abundant fishing.

Just metres off the coast of Paynesville is Raymond Island, accessible via the Raymond Island Ferry. Predominantly residential, the island offers some bushwalking trails. There is also an artificial island that grew out of the development of a network of canals that provided absolute waterfront residential properties, Burrabogie Island.

The town maintains it’s maritime history with good facilities for boat repairs, servicing and boat hires. It is also the base of a large commercial fishing fleet and home of the Lakes Yacht Club.

Check out our range of Paynesville accommodation and Gippsland accommodation. In addition to our listed online travel guide information, contact the local tourism visitor centre for your destination for more attractions, tours, local maps and other information.
