A seaside town under the Gympie Region local government area in southeastern Queensland, Tin Can Bay is situated 218 kilometres north of Brisbane, 52.9 kilometres northwest of Gympie and 71.6 kilometres southeast of Maryborough. It is also bordered by a deep but narrow sheltered inlet formed by the Coral Bay. Its name is thought to be derived from the local Aboriginal word “tuncanbar” which is believed to refer to the dugongs that frequented the inlet. While European settlement in the area in the 1870s established the town as a point for floating logs to the timber mills of Maryborough, Tin Can Bay eventually evolved into an important fishing report, and has remained so up to the present. Recreational fishing is one of the main industries of the town. This is seconded by tourism generated by travellers going further north to the Great Sandy Strait, the sand passage estuary that separates the mainland from the heritage-listed Fraser Island. Other attractions that have made Tin Can Bay a popular stopover and tourist destination include dolphin feeding, marinas and boating facilities, the Tin Can Bay Country Club, and events like the annual Tin Can Bay Seafood Festival, Bay to Bay Yacht Race and Dragonboat Regatta.
