Information for travellers
Striking in beauty and rippled with colourful ancient sand dunes, the coastal town of Rainbow
Beach is nestled between Fraser Island and Cooloola National Park.
A true representation of the vast landscape of Queensland’s stunning coastline, you can sink your feet into the golden sand of the Carlo Sandblow, hike through the sub-tropical rainforest fringing the dunes, or explore the rainbow hues of the seaside beach cliffs.
If you want to explore further you can holiday like a Hemsworth and switch the bitumen for a 4x4 off-road adventure or join a tour with Great Beach Drive 4WD Tours. Venture all the way around the coastal headland to Double Island Point. Join Epic Ocean Adventures to surf or kayak with dolphins, swim in the protected northern beaches or hike the summit to the lighthouse built in 1884 and now operating on solar power.
For the adventurous you can dive with Grey Nurse Sharks year-round through Wolf Rock Dive Centre, canter along the beach with Rainbow Beach Horse Rides and take in this unspoilt part of coastal paradise by horseback or via the skies with Rainbow Beach Helicopters.
Strap on some hiking boots and take the time to really explore the vast Cooloola coastline on
the Cooloola Great Walk or head across to Fraser Island with Pippies Fraser Island tag along tour.
