You can’t help but think life is good there — sitting on the pier, cracking a tinnie or two, watching the world go by.
But the town has many more — real — claims to fame.
Like the idea of traffic-light-free living.

The listing says: “A fantastic lifestyle to behold is waiting for you at the ever popular Tin Can Bay … the best keep secret.”
“No pressure, no traffic lights, no parking meters, just a relaxed, laid back lifestyle to wander through the waterfront parklands with picnic areas, protected waterways just perfect for water sports such as canoeing, sail boarding, sailing and fishing to name a few past times.”
