My family has been holidaying in Metung since I was a child but I hadn’t been there for about 5 years when we decided to pay a visit in June. We were still really jet lagged when we arrived so we made the most of it and got up super early for some photography. Metung really is the most relaxing and peaceful place – it’s great for families, nature lovers or people just looking to get away from the big cities. I think its popularity has grown in the past few years because there are some trendy coffee places in the main part of town that definitely weren’t there when I last came in 2011! If you want a good flat white, make sure you visit Bancroft Bites, just opposite the village green. We had one almost every morning after our sunrise walks. Sipping coffee, sitting by the waterfront and watching the quiet lake was one of the highlights of my trip.
I’ve also added in a few photos of wildlife from our trip to Raymond Island. Not far from Metung, this island has a large native koala population and it’s the perfect place to see these adorable little things up close in their native habitat. Within two minutes of stepping off the ferry we had spotted one, closely followed by a family of sleeping kangaroos.
