Tin City Adventure

After a leisurely 20 minutes drive along the beach you will find 'Tin City' emerging out of the sand dunes like a mirage. It all began in the late 1800s when two tin huts were built to store provisions for ship wrecked sailors. There are some 98 ship wrecks between Newcastle and Port Stephens. In the 1930s Great Depression 'Tin City' grew to 36 huts. A number of movies have been made at this location, including parts of Mad Max. The pub still stands. Other activities included on this tour are sand boarding, visiting the 'Pyramids' , old World War Two sites and Aboriginal cultural sites.
