Raymond Island, Gippsland, Victoria
Tudor style cottages 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. There is no road between the house and beach! Set in idyllic natural setting of gums and banksias with lots of native animals including kangaroos, koalas, echidnas and large variety of birds. Raymond Island is the home of Victoria’s koala population.

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.
