Tourist Information


Tin Can Bay is a quiet holiday destination for those who love the coast and the natural wonders of the Cooloola National Park. Located half an hour’s drive east of Gympie, the town is built on a peninsula that extends into Tin Can Inlet, close to the southern tip of World Heritage – listed Fraser Island.

The shallow waters provide safe beaches for families and calm waters for recreational boating. The township itself offers a great range of accommodation and dining as well as excellent recreational facilities including two lawn bowls venues and an eighteen hole golf course.

Families will find the Tin Can Bay foreshore an ideal location for holidays. Children can swim safely in the calm, warm, shallow waters. Enjoy barbecues, playgrounds and amenities along the foreshore. Explore the sand flats at low tide to see thousands of Soldier Crabs.
