Tingira Boat Club
The Tingira Boat Club is located on Macleay Island which is part of a group of Islands called the Southern Moreton Bay Islands.
Friday Night Dinners
With over 200 members, the Club meets on a Friday night for dinner prepared by the volunteer members. On the first Friday night of the month, it is Fish and Chip night when all are invited to take part. Bar opens at 6.00pm.
Sunday on the Deck.
The Club is also opened from noon on Sundays, where meals are served and the bar is open. What better way to enjoy a Sunday, sipping on a cool drink on the deck and enjoying the views across the water to the mainland
The Club Rooms are located on the west coast of the Island looking back towards the mainland. Sundays, when the tide is right, are boating days, with the Club owning a number of Vagabonds and canoes, members can be seen enjoying the waters of Moreton Bay.
The Club also enjoys an exciting Dragon Boat program where practice takes place every Sunday. Either at the Club or Karragarra Island depending on the tides.
Macleay Island Classic
Each year the Club hosts the Macleay Island Classic, a canoe race around Macleay Island. The event attracts paddlers from Byron Bay in NSW to Hervey Bay to the north. Next year , it will be run for tenth year on May 19 & 20 2018.
