Raymond Island is located across the McMillan Strait from Paynesville, on the Gippsland Lakes. The five minute ferry to Raymond Island departs Paynesville regularly and is free for pedestrians or those arriving by bike.

The Island draws nature lovers for some of the best koala-spotting around. The clearly marked path of the Raymond Island Koala trail leads you among the gumtrees where koalas can be spotted asleep above you (or out and about if you're lucky), the trail is 1.2km and can be finished in around 20 minutes. The area also supports an abundance of kangaroos, echidnas and native birds, and if you're lucky you may spot dolphins in the lake.

Aside from nature spotting, the Island is also relaxing place to hang out by the shore after a swim, and there are plenty of good spots to fish for bream, flathead and prawns.

Very clean and comfortable motel

Enjoyed our stay at Lakes Entrance very much. Cunningham Shore was very spacious, clean and the bed which we are very picky about was really comfy. Good location and owner very nice, even cleaning our car window before we left

10/10 for this motel

Kristian and Michelle are the owners and really lovely people. When I opened the door to my room I was pleasantly surprised. Beautiful room and totally spotless. I would definitely recommend this motel. It's the best one I have stayed at. The one I'm staying in tonight is the total opposite as I've had to wipe surfaces, remote etc as some things haven't been cleaned well at all. I felt so comfortable at Cunningham's with the cleanliness and the very friendly welcome. Thanks guys I hope to stay again.

Great stay - thank you

Friendly team. Thanks for taking the time to tell us all we needed to know about Lakes Entrance & activities that may interest us (including fishing spots for my son). Clean & comfortable room. Short stroll to town & beach

Lovely traditional motel

Room was quite large with a sofa as well. Bed very comfy with electric blanket which was very welcoming on a cold night. Plenty of hot water in the shower. Very clean. Very friendly gentleman checked us in and offered suggestions for dinner. Same gentleman cleaned the windscreen of all the cars next morning. How good is that! Excellent value.

Highly Recommend

Great location. Water views over the road. Easy walk down the street. Very clean rooms and outside areas. Good size room and facilities. BBQ and pool area. Very friendly and approachable hosts. A great feature for no extra cost-if you are staying more than one night you can have your room refreshed when you go out for the morning. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we’ll be back

Perfect Family getaway

What a fantastic family run place. We stayed for 5 nights and couldn’t fault a thing. The room was very clean and comfortable, with plenty of space to relax when we were there, along with the great little grasses bbq area that we could sit a relax at while our son played on the grass. Great value for money. Michelle & Kristian are very friendly and accommodating. Kristian event pops out on you morning of check out and cleans you car windscreen.. Perfect location view of the water front, just out of town that you can walk but don’t here the hustle and bustle of the town. We will definitely be back and highly recommend stay with them.
