    WE have a house in Melbourne and one in Metung in the Gippsland and Lakes area of Victoria.

    Beautiful little village . AT the moment we would like to host a short time guest in Metung to assist with outside gardening, maintenance and window cleaning.

    This is a beautiful little village with lots of things to see and do in the surrounding area.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    WE are a quiet retired couple. I am a former teacher. WE enjoy company.

    Metung is very much a fishing and boating town. Surrounded on three sides by water, the town is well serviced by a number of marinas and jetties, with several cruise operators catering for visitors. Safe swimming is available at Shaving Point and near the jetty along Metung's western coast.

    There is a train to Bairnsdale and we would pick a guest up from there. we often go to Melbourne mostly on Thursday - Saturday .

    THey would be welcome to come with us and stay in Melbourne.
    THere are many beautiful towns and we are 2 hours from the snowfields.

    Metung is situated between Bairnsdale and Lakes Entrance within the extensive Gippsland Lakes, on a thin peninsula of land that extends into Lake King.

    The town centre features a general store, a number of restaurants and cafes, and several speciality shops. The Metung Hotel, which dates back to 1873, is situated within the town's commercial centre and has direct water frontage onto Bancroft Bay and the adjoining wharf.

    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.
