Raymond Island, Gippsland, Victoria
This Tudor style house is located on one of the most beautiful places on Raymond Island, 6km's from the Paynesville township on 10 acres of bushland with tall trees in a parklike setting. Secluded off a beautiful long winding driveway, the house with it's two built in 2 storey cottages is but a few metres from the water's edge, has a safe sandy beach which stretches for miles on this side of the island.

About the neighbourhood
Raymond Island (Gunai/Kurnai language: Bunjil-baul) is a small island in the Gippsland Lakes, about 300 km (190 mi) from Melbourne. The island is approximately 6 km (3.7 mi) long by 2 km (1.2 mi) wide, and is just 200 m (660 ft) off the coast, across from the town of Paynesville. The island is named after William Odell Raymond, originally a magistrate from New South Wales who established himself as a squatter in Gippsland in the 1840s. 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.

Ferry which leaves Raymond Island every 20 minutes on the hour from 6.40am till 11pm and midnight (Fri & Sat). Also one very early ferry at 5.20am. Vehicles cost $12 return. After your 4 minute ride across the strait, exit the ferry and turn left, follow short road, turn left at Western Boulevarde, follow bitumen road (water on your left) all the way to end, turn left (blue Swan Cove sign) at Gravelly Point Rd all the way to cross roads, turn left at Centre Road and we are 390, a couple of kms on the right. Driveway is 750m. The first house you see is the workshop on your right and on your left you will see our very large enclosed Octagon vegetable/fruit and chicken house. Main house and cottages are a little further on in front.
