Tin Can Bay is located 222km north of Brisbane on the Tin Can Inlet, which joins the Great Sandy Strait between Fraser Island and the mainland. The seaside fishing community revolves around its plentiful waterways so if you’re into boating and fishing this holiday village would certainly suit you.
The inlet is bordered by a grassy foreshore with barbeque and picnic facilities, toilets, children’s playground and a skate park. There is also a 45 minute environmental walk along the foreshore through native flora, fauna and varying environments around the bay. There is much birdlife and plenty of wildflowers in the area to appreciate.
There is also an abundance of fish species
ready for the taking, fishing being the most popular activity here. Fish caught in the inlet and creek include Mackerel, Flathead, Whiting, John Dory, Emperor, Tailor, Cod, Jewfish, Mangrove Jack, Trevally and Bream. Tin Can Bay is also home to many crustaceans and molluscs including prawns, crayfish, bugs, mud crabs and scallops.

also operate from the marina and houseboats
are available for hire. Relaxing on a houseboat would be the ideal way to explore the calm inlet waters and Snappers Creek whilst wetting a line and enjoying the scenery as well as the peace and quiet on the water. Yacht charters are also available for those keen to explore the protected waterway of the Great Sandy Strait between Inskip Point and Hervey Bay. World Heritage Listed Fraser Island shields this fishing and boating paradise from the rougher seas of the Pacific Ocean.
