Situated some 3.5 hours from Melbourne, Raymond Island is perfect for those who wish to relax and wake to the sounds of nothing other than beautiful birds.
A short ($11.00 return) ferry ride separates the Island from Paynesville. This maybe the reason there are no vermin visible. Koalas and Kangaroos are in abundance...
Apparently the fishing is wonderful, although I can only brag of catching one 35cm bream.
Dolphins regularly frequent the waterways. We viewed 2 schools on 4 occasions.
Living conditions in this bush retreat are terrific. Everything one would wish to use or need is on available. The few contacts with the owner were always friendly and helpful.
A helpful hint: If travelling in a vehicle from to Paynesville to Raymond Island frequently, it may pay to walk on the ferry, (which is totally free) and have the opportunity to view the many fine local shops.More
