Double Island Point and
Great Surf Beach
Double Island Point is our most eastern location and hosts our historic lighthouse and Conservation Park. The views are spectacular. Marine life, particularly dolphins, whales (in season), turtles, sharks, sting rays, manta rays, dugongs and fish can be enjoyed from this headland. The point is easiest accessed on the southern side where a steep path leads up to the lighthouse and caretaker’s houses. Very popular surfing beach.
The Coloured Sands
Travelling from the Rainbow Beach Township you will also pass our beautiful Coloured Sands. The cliffs boast over 70 different sand colours and are arguably better on the Rainbow side of Double Island.
Camping is not permitted along the beach between Rainbow Beach township & Double Island Point, however there is a 15 km camping zone between the Noosa Shire boundary and Little Freshwater Creek that allows camping. There are no facilities provided and we strongly encourage campers to bring their own portable toilet. A waste dump point is available at the Freshwater day-use area. You will also need to purchase a Vehicle Permit to travel along the beach.
Camping permits must be obtained prior to arrival.
