Tin Can Bay Tourist Park has been recommended by a fellow TAWKer who thought they would be a great fit for the TAWK Support Program. AND they are! We sent an email and got one straight back saying YES, they'd love to be a part of the movement and welcome travelling families.
What a beautiful part of Australia too! It's on the beautiful Cooloola Coast, which is two and a half hour's drive north of Brisbane and just off the southern tip of the World Heritage listed Fraser Island.
If you do want to head off to Fraser Island for a while, they also offer van storage for $5 per day or $20 per week for. It is subject to availability and must be requested upon booking so they know if they willq have room.
They also know lots of helpful information on Fraser Island as they are regular visitors, so know it well.
The beautiful tranquil Tin Can Bay, has so much to offer you and the kids and many of them are nature based activities and free! Just walking along the foreshore, kayaking, cycling (oh and they can hire adult bikes to you) fishing, boating and relaxing by the pool.
Who said fishing!!?
Oh and then there's the pool! It was a 'must have' for my kids - sometimes they do have enough of travelling and looking and exploring. Sometimes the kids just want to be...kids. They want to ride their bikes or just splash around in the pool - which is heated all year round.
The owners at Tin Can Bay Tourist park can point you in the right direction to make the most of your stay here. They can suggest and help you book tours to the gorgeous Fraser Island, they can give you their experience on the local fishing spots, local restaurants and best things to do with the kids.
Just a short walk along the foreshore and you'll find a great little park for the kids, together with my kids favourite; a skate park!
Rainbow Beach is just on the door step with sandblows, fresh water lakes, 4x4 driving and surf beaches. Tin Can Bay is the best place to base yourselves and explore the whole region.
Not far from Tin Can Bay Tourist Park is Barnacles Dolphin Centre, where you can hand feed the Dolphin's! Forget Monkey Mia - you can do it here too! The kids will love it, now the dolphins generally arrive early so you need to be there between 7.00 and 8.00am. This would be such a great experience for the kids and something you should do with them and of course there's some education about these gorgeous creatures thrown in. Make sure you also ask for a family discount.
Pets by Application Only As TAWKers, we travel all year round so you should be OK if you do have your dog with you, but do give them a call first as there are certain times when no dogs are allowed; this is during peak periods for example: Easter, September and Christmas School Holidays. So just check first.
Time to head over to Tin Can Bay Tourist Park for all the information you'll need. As there really is so much more.
