Rainbow Beach

Rainbow Beach is a hidden gem on the East Coast. The beach is stunning, and if you're heading north, this is the last place you'll get decent surf on the East Coast. Walk to the Carlo Sand Blow to watch the sunset with a cold drink or embark on a 4WD Fraser Island adventure.

Population: 1300

Vibe: Chilled as, relax before and after Fraser Island

Known for: Carlo Sand Blow sunsets


THINGS TO SEE AND DO

Fraser Island Sandboarding

Visit Fraser Island
Drive a 4x4 (or just relax and let your friends do the hard work) out to Fraser Island where you will experience stunning lakes, creeks and rainforests. Spend the night telling stories around the campfire before setting up camp under the stars.

Sandboard at Carlo Sand Blow
Take a free guided walking tour from your hostel to one of Rainbow Beaches best hotspots - Carlo Sand Blow. Grab some sandboards and cruise the dunes, or just lounge around and watch the sunset from one of the most incredible vantage points in the region.
