Explore Tin Can Bay

Albeit a tiny part of Queensland, Tin Can Bay is conveniently located near Fraser Island, the Cooloola Coast and Gympie, meaning there’s always something to do. The town itself has so much on offer that you may not have time to see everything!

Fishing is a favourite among locals and tourists, as this part of Queensland enjoys a large variety of fish species. Try your luck at angling or rent a boat for a day out on the water!

You can also try a selection of local restaurants and favoured must-see spots!

Coastal Holiday Locations

Other Nearby Attractions

Double Island Point is located between Rainbow and Noosa and is only accessible to SWD vehicles – depending on the beach conditions. It is home to a beautiful lighthouse and has sweeping coastal views, ideal for aspiring photographers. The scenic beach drive is incomplete without boarding the river ferry to Noosa – providing a different view of the landscape.

The Mary Valley is about an hour’s drive away and boasts green rolling pastures and farming land. The valley has wineries, popular fishing, boating, and ski dams and is home to the mighty Mary River. Guests can sit back and relax on The Rattler, a heritage rail experience that provides a unique journey through the beautiful and scenic Mary Valley. Sleepy Lagoon Motel offers a tailored package specifically for this attraction!
