Tin Can Bay is a beautiful part of Queensland and one of the quietest part of the coastline – before K’Gari (Fraser Island) begins heading north from Brisbane.

Took the opportunity to head off for a night on the Queen’s Birthday weekend early October 2021.

Was fortunate enough to get a cancellation on the Thursday night so prepped and headed off Saturday morning from Brisbane.  Left early to avoid the expected tide of people heading on the northern highway and managed to arrive in Tin Can Bay after a brief stop in Gympie.

First up was a drive along the water line followed by lunch at the Tin Can Bay Yacht Club – a beautiful location with nice food and very friendly staff.

After lunch stopped at the local IGA to get some supplies and then checked in to the Tin Can Bay Tourist Park where they advised the park had been full since June 2020. Camping had become a major past-time for COVID-19 stranded Queenslanders.

After setting up the van took a walk along the water to Crab Tree Park. It was low tide still and there were people enjoying canoeing and swimming along the water’s edge.
