Tin Can Bay is a fishing and boating paradise located on the Cooloola Coast 2 1/2 hours drive north of the Queensland state capital Brisbane and just off the southern tip of World Heritage listed Fraser Island. Tin Can Bay's main industry is still fishing, boasting a fishing fleet of  prawn and scallop trawlers working out of here on a seasonal basis and more recently Spanner Crabs are being caught for the overseas market.

Tin Can Bay is renowned for it's visiting wild dolphins!

Our dolphins are usually at Norman Point next to the boat ramp between 7.30 am and 8.00 am. They may also visit at other times during the day, but we have no way of knowing when!

With ample sunshine, the Cooloola region boasts a glorious climate with temperatures averaging 24 degree's celcius over the winter/spring seasons and minimal humidity why would you not wish to escape the southern winters right here on the coast.

Marina and Houseboat/Yacht charter facilities reflect the predominance of water-based activities for visitors wishing to explore the Great Sandy Straits from Inskip Point to Hervey Bay, a beautiful waterway protected by Fraser Island. The old town itself is built on a peninsula that protrudes into Tin Can Inlet providing safe beaches for families and calm waters for recreational boating. Only 90 minutes north is Hervey Bay, home of Whale Watching from July to November and the same distance south to the bright lights of Noosa.
