Legend Rock

Historic Site in Metung

In the water just in front of Metung Yacht Club is Legend Rock, a stop along the Bataluk Cultural Trail and a significant site for the Gunai and Kurnai people. The legend goes that fishermen from the Tatungalung clan had eaten more than their share while neglecting to feed the dogs – so as way of punishment the women here turned them to stone.

There were originally three rocks, but two were destroyed during road construction in the 1960s.
