May 11, 2016 - Day 25

Day 25 Into Gympie had a look around and refurbished our food stocks and down to Rainbow Beach onto Inskip Peninsula where they catch the barge over to Frasier Island. To get to the barge you had to cross the beach sand and you have to air down as we could see where people had trouble getting there as the sand had deep ruts and we saw one 4x4 towing a camper get bogged it looked as if he had bottomed out on the camper. Camped at Tin Can Bay caravan park called Kingfisher This is well worth keeping in mind if you are over here.

Feb 16, 2014 - Tin Can Bay

After church (and morning tea) we collected the van and headed for Tin Can Bay, only 30 odd kms away on the western shore of the bay from Inskip. At first glance it didn't seem to have too much to recommend it but it did turn out to be quite pleasant. After our 5 - 6 days in the sand and dirt at I P everything needed a good wash. That done we set out to explore and found a new housing development 5 kms out of town, Cooloola Cove, with a good shopping centre. I also found a good hairdresser right opposite the caravan park. Monday This...

18th September After an interesting drive from Bundaberg. mmm we were overtaken on blind corners, solid lines and oncoming traffic.

Arriving at the Kingfisher Caravan Park in Tin Can Bay, we will stay put till after the school holidays.The caravan park is old but clean and comfortable. They are renovating with a new amenities block starting in a few weeks. We have had a quiet relaxing week...

24th November Tin Can Bay Woke up at 4.30 the a stunning sunrise through the palm trees on the beach. Had a lie in and saw the wreck one last time before moving to the tourist information and it's park where the Pelicans came to be fed. A crazy Foreign pellican feeding local information man does it every morning. They are wierd creatures. Biting eachothers necks with their clumsy beaks. We waited till they flew off, randomly found a helpful tax office, then went for a walk to the free public settlers lagoon where we swam. It was a cut and...

Things I saw at Tin Can Bay. Nerida and Clayton and baby swimming beaches Nice Pool Dolphins that eat from your hand. Great breakfast cafe servicing tourists at said dolphin spot. Great parks and playgrounds and bike trails Things I DID NOT see at Tin Can Bay Tin Cans. Enough said, I'm going them for false advertising. Nah, it as a nice sleepy little beach town with unique dolphins that have learnt to cajole food out of rich tourists. At 5 bucks a head, I wonder what the dolphin cut is? We had a superb time catching up with our old...
