No boat - no worries this is perfect.

We took the Thunderbird cruise which was a leisurely 2.5hr cruise through 70km of the gippsland lakes. Perfect way to take in the beauty of this area.

On a recent visit, we took the double trip on Thunderbird which was the lunch cruise to Metung followed by a longer cruise around the lakes and through Paynesville via Raymond Island. We had excellent service from the crew and great commentary from skipper Roger. Saw pelicans and other birds, watched dolphins frolicking, enjoyed an on board wine and simply... More

We took the lunch cruise to Metung. The ferry was comfortable and the commentary useful. The captain took time to go to the entrance and allow passengers to observe seals and Dolphins. Lunch at Metung Hotel was well prepared - a light two course meal choice of four mains. The ferry returned to pick us up and then we completed... More

About half the time is spent cruising on the lakes (with an informative commentary from the capatain) and the other half is lunch at the Metung Pub. Great value and a pleasant day on the sheltered waters of the Gippsland Lakes so no chance of getting seasick (unless you drink too much at the Pub). Visit Australia's largest inland waterway...

This was a delightful way to visit the small coastal town of Metung. The trip is quick, but enjoyable. We did the lunch cruise, and this was really well organised. Most of us having our lunch served within minutes of arrival and ordering. Beautiful fish lunch seemed to be the choice of most. The trip back was really interesting, taking... More

We went out in the afternoon cruise with our 3 children aged 3, 6 & 8 and it was really nice. We had a perfect day for it and the staff were all great. Our eldest was a little bored but other than that we all really enjoyed it. It's a great way to experience the Lakes and the Captain... More

The ticket master was very rude. So was the gatekeeper when we got down at Metung for lunch. Lunch at Metung complements very well to the rude behaviour of the staff. Sorrento ferry near Melbourne is way much much better and value for money.

Took the lunch cruise to Metung, on what turned into a beautiful sunny winters day. There weren't many on the cruise, so the atmosphere was quite convivial. The commentary from our skipper was good, and she made every attempt to show us the wildlife, like eagles, seals and dolphins to mention a few. Lunch at the pub was great, and... More

We went on the Metung Lunch Cruise. It was a most enjoyable and relaxing trip. The crew were knowledgeable of the local area and gave an interesting commentary. Lunch was included, making it a reasonably priced day out. Great scenery

The ferry ride was great, informative and the stop at the pub for lunch was lovely. The time to walk around Metung was just long enough. What a lovely way to fill in your holidays.
