Boating Trail Features


Launch from the McMillan Strait boat ramp in the vibrant fishing town of Paynesville where you can pick up all your supplies and grab a coffee. Then boat around the vast Lake King to spot dolphins.

Head east towards the quiet waterfront of Metung where you can berth for free at the pub and eat lunch overlooking the water. Continue to Boxes Creek, where you can moor along the sheltered beach and walk to the top of the bluff for spectacular views over Bancroft Bay.

Then hit the pristine golden sands of Ninety Mile Beach where you can swim, fish or do some whale spotting before mooring or camping overnight at Bunga Arm.
