Tin Can Bay

Another short drive today, 56km, around the estuary to Tin Can Bay,  Had a look at 2 Caravan Parks and settled on the Tin Can Bay Tourist Park, very clean, tidy and plenty of space.  A member site of Top Tourist Parks so we joined up ($30 for 2 years and 10% discount so got $16.80 back straight away).  Staying here for a week then moving a little further North.

Discovered today that the sand flies at Inskip yesterday took their toll on me, itching like mad and using heaps of Tea tree Cream on arms and legs,, ouch!  Inskip proved our new battery/solar setup perfectly,  we would appear to be quite self sufficient on power with a rainy half day a cloudy day and a sunny day and maintained almost full battery voltage nearly all the time.  We need to manage our water useage a little better though as we only just lasted the 3 night stay but didn’t use the “extra” 20litre can we are carrying on the back of the van.

More when we have discovered this place.
