Discover the Harvey Bay, Fraser Island and the Great Sandy Strait with Tin Can Bay house boat rentals
QUEENSLAND ’S best kept secret is waiting to be discovered. Just a short two hour drive north of Brisbane you will find a wonderland of private beaches, natural bushland and crystal clear waters. This aquatic paradise is The Great Sandy Strait, an unspoiled wilderness enjoyed almost exclusively by locals, fisherfolk and boaties ‘in the know’.
The Great Sandy Strait stretches from the peaceful seaside town of Tin Can Bay (merely 50ks from the Bruce highway at Gympie) up the mainland coast of the World Heritage Fraser Island to Harvey Bay.
The protection between the mainland and Fraser Island ensures year round calm waters and safe anchorage, making Tin Can Bay the perfect starting point to enjoy a Fraser Island & Harvey Bay boating holiday during any season.
The ideal way to get a bird’s eye view of the Strait is by boat ... and no, you don’t need to own one, or even how to drive one as the calm waters provide an excellent setting for Fraser Island & Harvey Bay via Luxury Afloat’s Tin Can Bay house boat rentals! Channels, clearly marked, will guide your house boat to a myriad of sheltered inlets for a spot of fishing, a swim or a quiet reflection of nature.
With your very own floating house boat plus all the modern day equipment and luxuries, this is ‘it’ in dream vacations!
The Great Sandy Strait has clearly marked channels to guide your rented house boat to the many safe anchorages dotted along the coastlines of Tin Can Bay so you can explore Harvey Bay, Fraser Island and other surrounding destinations. As the area has remained unnoticed from the main tourist stream, the wildlife is refreshingly curious ... there are Dolphins which often come right up to the boat, a highlight of any holiday .... the shy, elusive Dugongs are frequently seen in the crystal clear waters .... and in the stillness of dusk you may catch a sighting of a famous Fraser Island Dingo.
Turtles, birdlife, kangaroos and other Australian fauna will add to the magical experience. Evening in the Strait is a special time with the spectacular night sky away from civilization, the stars will dazzle as you relax on your hired houseboat’s deck with a fishing rod in one hand and a tinnie (or a champagne) in the other. Bliss!
This type of house boat holiday accommodation will suit just about all vacationers, from families, a fishing group to honeymooners ... or perhaps a weekend party ... in fact, any persons looking for a memorable experience.
Fishing is excellent all year round in The Great Sandy Strait and what could be a more idyllic a setting. Dining on fish freshly caught (by you) for breakfast and looking forward to the day ahead is what holidays are meant for.
Exciting and relaxing ... Tin Can BayHouseboat Hire is the ultimate in holidays!
