Norman Point

Norman Point is a popular tourist attraction located at Tin Can Bay.

It’s popular for being one of the few areas in Australia that are home to dolphins, which visitors can come to hand feed.

The best time to visit the Australian Humpback dolphins are between the hours of 7:30am to 8am, though they don’t come when the tide is low. Keep in mind that while there are generally good chances of seeing the dolphins here, there is no guaranteed sighting, as they are wild animals. Other popular attractions within the area include The Esplanade and Oyster Parade, which feature excellent swimming, BBQ and picnic areas, and coastal parks.

Norman Point is one of the best family-friendly destinations in the area. After seeing the dolphins, check out Tin Can Bay’s many sights and activities. A beautiful walkway that is 9.5km long makes it easy to explore this region on foot. It takes you along the foreshore of the Tin Can Inlet and Snapper Creek; you can even go on your own because several information boards tell you about the plants and animals you encounter here. For birdwatching enthusiasts, the Foreshore Bird Walk is highly recommended.

Take the whole family out on a day of fun and sun by hiring a boat. Snapper Creek and Tin Can Inlet are particularly popular for their excellent boating conditions. These waters are great for fishing, sailing, bird watching, and sightseeing as well. Houseboats and yachts alike can all be rented from the marina located on Emperor Street.

Don’t forget to visit the Great Sandy Strait nearby; it extends from Rainbow Beach to Hervey Bay. It’s also located between Fraser Island and the mainland. The Great Sandy Strait is a beautiful destination for boating enthusiasts because of the many safe anchorages.

Norman Point is your gateway to experiencing unforgettable memories at Tin Can Bay.
