About Sleepy Lagoon Motel

Tin Can Bay’s Sleepy Lagoon Motel is centrally located, just a short stroll to the local shopping precinct and adjacent to the Tin Can Bay Hotel which has a popular bistro Restaurant. Two small blocks away is the picturesque foreshore, children’s play area and skate park. You will find the best Tin Can Bay has to offer within easy reach.

Tin Can Bay is nestled in the calm waters off the Great Sandy Straits, a premier fishing spot and home to a multitude of marine life, such as wild dolphins, sea turtles and dugongs. A short drive away is Rainbow Beach, a very popular tourist spot and surf beach. From Rainbow it’s a few minutes drive to Inskip Point, a lovely sand cape, popular with campers, where the barge leaves for the world heritage listed Fraser Island. Let’s not forget the rolling green hills of the Mary Valley and Gympie, all an easy drive from Tin Can Bay. Tin Can Bay is at the heart of the best Cooloola Coast tourist attractions.

Tin Can Bay’s premier attraction is the wild dolphin feeding, held at Barnacles Cafe on Norman Point, just a three minute drive from the motel. The wild Indo-Pacific humpback dolphin Mystique brings his family in every morning at eight for a feed, and interaction for everyone to enjoy. Vouchers for feeding, viewing or a hot breakfast are available at reception.
