Location

Rainbow Beach, Queensland, Australia

Things to see and do:
1. Dolphin kayaking There is some 300+ dolphins living in the area and chances to see dolphins on kayak tour are high (90%) with likely chances to also see turtles, whales (June- October), manta rays, sea birds and soldier crabs in their thousands.
2. Rainbow beach is the gateway to the very famous Frazer Island, which is a highly recommended for a day trip.
3. Coloured Sands Rainbow Beach - a 6 km return walk along the beach from Rainbow Beach Resort to this world famous landmark. Erosion has exposed a palette of as many as 72 different coloured sands which have been produced by combinations of iron oxide and leached vegetable dyes. It is likely that the sands have been forming since the last ice age.
4. Carlo Sandblow - 5 minute drive from the resort to the public car park with a 15 minute easy stroll. It's an excellent spot to watch the sunrise or sunset. The 360 degree views are spectacular, to the East has magnificent views of the ocean where one can often see the migrating whales from August to October. To the south east is Double Island Point and the cliffs of coloured sand. Fraser and Inskip point are to the North, while Tin Can Bay and the Great Sandy Straits lie to the West.
5. Poonah Lake - 20 minute drive from the resort. Walk through the rainforests for a swim in Lake Poona.
6. Rainbow Beach Horse Rides - Join Rainbow Beach Horse Rides to experience something unique as you ride a horse along the picturesque Rainbow Beach. Horse Riding along Rainbow Beach is amazing, with fantastic views of the 'Coloured Sands', 'Double Island Point' and 'Fraser Island'.
6. 4WD on Beach - There's plenty of four wheel driving to do at Rainbow. You can drive south to Noosa or north to Fraser. Along the way have a look at Freshwater campground, Double Island Point, the Coloured Sands and just admire the beauty of this majestic location.
7. Skydiving - Enjoy your ultimate experience at Rainbow Beach, a Tandem Skydive with amazing coastal views over Fraser Island, Carlo Sandblow, Double Island Point and the Coloured Sands that Rainbow Beach is famous for. Freefall at speeds up to 220km/hr then enjoy the views of the coast before landing right on the surf beach.
8. Ocean fishing - You are fully catered for on Baitrunner with morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea as well as soft drinks, tea and coffee being provided free of charge. Please just bring your hat, sunnies and camera with you. Sunscreen is provided. You are welcome to bring your own alcohol. All bait and tackle is provided. You can bring your own rod if you wish. Our tackle consists of overheads, Baitrunner 6500s and the reliable ALVEY 750s. All the best fresh baits are used, including live and cut yakka
