Situated on the shores of Bancroft Bay in the heart of Gippsland Lakes, Australia’s largest inland waterway, the village of Metung has been a premier resort area for nearly 100 years. Metung Hotel is located on 4644 sq mt land on the magnificent waters of Bancroft Bay in the Gippsland Lakes. The Metung Hotel was renovated in late 2005 and the place looks great! Come and visit us for a drink, something to eat and or watch the Pelicans being fed everyday at 12.00 noon sharp. If its a nice day, why not have a drink on the boardwalk, right on the water. Maybe bring your boat and tie up. If you don’t have a boat you can hire one locally.
