Tin Can Bay often has dolphins coming in to the marina looking for food leftover from fisherman. Dolphins usually come in for a feed at around 7-8am, but only fish sold on site can be hand fed to the dolphins.
Hop on a boat and take a cruise out on to the open water for a day of relaxation, or bring your fishing gear and head out on a fishing tour.
Head over to the Great Sandy National Park which is one of the most loved natural attractions on the Sunshine Coast and stretches over 56,000 hectares. The national park is popular for its fascinating landscape and extensive beaches. High sand dunes, sweeping beaches, freshwater lakes, tall forests, paperbark swamps and wildflower heath are the main attraction at this beautiful national park. Thousands of visitors come here each year to relax and enjoy nature at its best.
Popular activities within the national park include walking trails, scenic drives, hiking, canoeing, picnicking and camping. The best way to see Cooloola is by walking or four-wheel-driving as Cooloola’s sand tracks are rough. You can also access Cooloola by travelling up the Noosa River by kayak or small boat which can be hired from the Boreen Point and Elanda Point private camping areas.
