Paynesville and District
Paynesville and District includes Paynesville, Raymond Island, Eagle Point and Newlands Arm.
Just 17 kilometres from Bairnsdale, Paynesville offers lakeside and canal living with direct access to Lake King and Lake Victoria in the heart of the Gippsland Lakes. Paynesville is known as the boating capital of Victoria, has a strong boating and tourism-based economy and is one of the fastest growing communities in the region.
Council recently celebrated the completion of several major projects in the area, including the redevelopment of the Paynesville foreshore, an upgrade of the Esplanade boat ramp and jetty, refurbishment of the Progress Jetty toilets, and the redevelopment of Gilsenan Reserve. These projects contribute to Council’s vision of building a thriving, vibrant and liveable East Gippsland.

Council formally adopted the Paynesville Growth Area Structure Plan on 2 August 2016.
This plan covers the area from Grandview Road east to the currently developed edge of Paynesville; and the area north of Paynesville Road from Waterview Road east to Fullarton Drive.
The plan provides a framework for growth and expansion of Paynesville for the next 20+ years and will ensure that the growth integrates with the existing town and retains a character that is recognisably Paynesville.
The next steps will be to develop the necessary documentation to enable the plan to be inserted into the East Gippsland Planning Scheme.
