Motorhome travel is a way of life and for those living the dream, there is a new event on the calendar.

The Australian Motorhoming Lions Club (AMLC) have been working with the Tin Can Bay Chamber of Commerce and Gympie Regional Council to bring the You Can @ Tin Can event to the Cooloola Coast.

With the Music Muster at the end of August and the Gympie Campervan and Motorhome Club Rally in late September, there was a gap to be filled, so AMLC President, Len Waddington, seized the opportunity to keep the wheels turning in the region.

Hot off the successful Guinness World Record attempt for the longest RV line at Barcaldine, with 868 vehicles in attendance, Len put his thinking cap on.

The ‘We Serve’ motto was in full force when developing the You Can event with fellow Lion Peter Smyth.

“The aim is to provide a business and community economic boost by providing controlled low-cost parking options for self-contained motor homes, so there’s plenty in the kitty to spend locally,” Peter explained.

Local caravan parks will be the ‘go to’ place for any participants wanting the luxury of power and water facilities.

Attendees will be treated to two weeks of planned and spontaneous activities throughout the Cooloola Coast and in turn promote the area far and wide, spreading the word that the Cooloola Coast is the place to go.

Tin Can Bay Chamber of Commerce and Tourism President, Jess Milne, has been a big advocate for the event and is looking forward to a cross-coastal collaboration of opportunities.

“There is more here than meets the eye and this event is a perfect opportunity to bring all these wonderful experiences to the table.”
