Tin Can Bay - Widgee - Kinbombi Falls
Well, Ross Creek Store, a free camp, for one night before going on to TCB.
Tin Can Bay is on my list of fav-go-to places it's a quiet and picturesque little community good for bike riding and walking about, a great place to just drop out for a bit and veg out. The essentials are here by way of clubs, a pub, and IGA. The fishing is good and the Yacht Club does meals with a great view. Dolphins come for a feed each morning attracting mostly overseas tourist.
Back from the coast on the inland side of Gympie is the very small town of Widgee with a general store that sells most of the essentials you might need. If you want power you can stop across the road at the showgrounds for a fee. But just out of town is the Marg McIntosh Park, a nice free spot to stop for the night. Just me and one other vehicle that night.
Heading west, about 30km as the crow flies is Kinbombi Falls another fairly quiet free camp with some great walks. Well if you don't have a problem with stairs that is. My shots didn't measure up but there are lots of photos on Google.
