How does a sunny Queensland holiday sound? At the northern tip of the Sunshine Coast, our Rainbow Beach hotels are the gateway to stunning Fraser Island and we can't think of a better place to spend a well-earned break!
Rainbow Beach gets its name from the amazing coloured cliffs that it's so famous for, thought to have been formed during the last Ice Age. There are actually 70 different hues in the sand and the local Aboriginals believe that it was a rainbow-coloured god who smashed out the colourful cliffs in battle. These days, Rainbow Beach is a quiet little town with a booming tourism industry and when you see the stunning natural surroundings, you won't be surprised that it's such a popular destie.
The Carlo Sand Blow is the main attraction around here and was actually named after one of Captain Cook's crew members. This 15 hectare mass of sand is really impressive to look at but if you go for a bush walk up to the summit, you'll be amazed by the views that await you. If you're here between August and October, you might be lucky enough to spot some whales on the horizon but no matter what time of year you're here, the view of the rising and setting sun is incredible from the top of the sand blow.
Are you an adrenalin junkie? Then hire a 4WD and head into the Great Sandy National Park and revel in the secluded beaches, lakes and wildflowers. Afterwards, you can step it up a notch by going scuba diving, hang-gliding, paragliding or skydiving over Fraser Island.
Rainbow Beach Road, near the main swimming beach, is where all of the local shops, cafes and eateries are located. So, grab your essential items and don't forget to purchase a little jar of layered coloured sand as a souvenir.
Rainbow Beach is about 150km from the Maroochydore Airport, so get yourself on one of these cheap flights to Maroochydore and then hire a car (preferably a 4WD) to get around.
