Paynesville Classic Boat Rally


Paynesville Classic Boat Rally is two days of boating events, music, entertainment and fun, celebrating the boating heritage of the Gippsland Lakes.

Cruise aboard the tall ship Coral Trekker on her visit from Sydney Harbour, watch the Grand Parade of over 200 boats sail through McMillan Strait on Saturday. Catch the Quick & Dirty boat build challenge across both days, the Parade of Sailboats and the always exciting Band & Return challenge on Sunday.

If that’s all too much (or not enough) checkout the classic car display, before relaxing on the grass listening to music as you enjoy lunch from the local cafes and visiting food vans, then hop on the ferry and head to Raymond Island to see the koalas.

This is a massive event for Paynesville with boats travelling from all over the country to come for the fun, actually, it’s a lot of fun even if you’re not a boatie!

Paynesville Classic Boat Rally will be raising money for GERF for fire affected communities, so bring your loose change for the tins!
