Filter by experience type:

Rainbow Beach is a coastal town located in the Wide Bay–Burnett region of Queensland and a gateway to K’gari (Fraser Island). The town is known for its stunning natural beauty, colorful sand dunes, and access to the southern tip of the Great Sandy National Park. If you are doing one of the 3 Day 2 Night Tag A Long trips you will probably spend a night before and after the trip.

What can I do there?

Explore the vibrant and multicolored sand cliffs that give Rainbow Beach its name. Take a walk along the beach to see the various hues created by the different minerals in the sand.

Hike up to Carlo Sand Blow for breathtaking panoramic views of the coastline and the Pacific Ocean. It’s also a popular spot for sunrise and sunset photography.

Relax on the long stretches of white sandy beaches. You can also engage in activities like swimming, beachcombing, and picnicking.

Try your hand at water sports such as kayaking, paddleboarding, or even taking a jet ski tour. The clear waters of the Pacific Ocean provide a great setting for these activities.

Ocean Adentures offer a Dolphin Kayaking Tour from here as well.

Since Rainbow Beach is a gateway to Fraser Island, consider taking a 1-day, 2-day, or 3-day tour to explore the world’s largest sand island. Visit places like Lake McKenzie, Eli Creek, and the Maheno Shipwreck.

Explore the surrounding areas with 4WD tours. This can include trips to the Great Sandy National Park or guided tours to more remote and adventurous locations.
