Raymond Island - Ferry & Koalas




Raymond Island is a small island in the Gippsland Lakes which is only 6 km long by 2 km wide, and is just 200 m off the coast, across from the town of Paynesville.

Raymond Island is well-known for its large koala population, originally introduced to the island in 1953 and for the Raymond Island Ferry, a chain ferry that links the island to Paynesville on the mainland.

Koala Trail - Leave your car on the mainland since pedestrians are free on the ferry. The Koala Walk is an easy 1.2 km and starts in the ferry park.

It comes as a surprise to many of our visitors that quite often Koalas can be found in trees close to the ferry. Look up as you reach our Island and just beyond our Ferry shed you may find one of our furry citizens.

Sometimes they can be seen in the trees near the water’s edge by the car park. Failing that you may have to go for a bit of a walk .To make it easier for you, Islanders have created a Koala Trail. As you come off the ferry look for the Tourist Information Board.

Raymond Island is also home to over 60 bird species and many species of ground orchids and wildflowers.
