EXPERIENCES

PLACES TO VISIT

FRASER ISLAND

Most definitely a 1 day tour is the recommendation. See all points of interest with the safety of an experienced driver. Lunch and morning tea included. Pay in full before arrival and be picked up from Inskip or else just pay a deposit on booking then pay the balance in full to the driver (you will need to drive into Rainbow Beach for the pick up).

If any kids have a car child seat or booster seat just take that with you as they have all the restraint points etc.. in place for these on the bus.

Prices are $185-205 for adults and $125-135 for children 4 – 14 years (children under 4 years are free).

We don’t recommend hiring a 4wd to self drive as Fraser is a lot bigger than people realise and cannot be seen in 1 day due to tide times and harshness of the soft sand.

Double Island PT

If you have your own 4wd you can drive to Double Island Point at low tide on any day you choose (Check with local knowledge that the rocks are passable as they do change).

Drive onto the beach at Rainbow and then it’s a beautiful 15 min drive up the beach to the Point. Most important is that it MUST be done at low tide only.

Here you could do your own walk around the point and the rocks to explore rock pools etc.. or wander up to the lighthouse for incredible views of the region.

THINGS TO DO

Surf & Sand Safaris

Do half day tours from Rainbow Beach up to Double Island Point and the lighthouse then back along the inland Freshwater track. Along the way you will experience the spectacular coloured sands of Rainbow.

$75 adults and $40 child (14 years and under) including morning or afternoon tea.

They also have the key to the lighthouse track so are the only operator who can actually drive to the top rather than having to walk up.

They use standard 4WD vehicles rather than a bus.

Kayaking & Paddleboarding tours with Epic Ocean

Approximately a 2 hour kayaking adventure around Double Island Point. Options are to self drive to the point or alternatively be transported by the tour operator.

Departure times vary according to when low tide is on the day. Minimum age for this tour is 4 – 5 years. They also have an alternative calm water ‘turtle tour’ using kayaks or stand up paddleboards (your choice) with a minimum age of 3-4 years (so long as child can sit upright and sit through a 1.5 hour guided tour).

Dolphin Feeding

Is a 25 minute drive to Tin Can Bay to the dolphin centre.

You need to be there by 7:30am for feeding. $5 entry to the centre and $5 to feed them.

• TIN CAN BAY DOLPHIN CENTRE

Beach horse riding

Often have 2 rides per day dependent on bookings. Usually around 10am and 2pm. Approximately a 2 hour experience. They are based in Rainbow Beach. They go through a short bush track and then out onto the beach for the rest of the ride. Minimum age is 10 years unless experienced.

The beach ride is $140 per person. Young riders under 10 also have the option of just having a short lead horse ride around the stables for $20.

• RAINBOW BEACH HORSE RIDES

Fishing rod hire

$20 per person and includes a rod and basic tackle box for the duration of your stay.

We also recommend a walk to our Carlo Sand Blow. Located on the top of the hill in Rainbow Beach – a spectacular open sand area reaching across the top of the hill with incredible views to Double Island Point on one side and out across to Tin Can Bay, the ocean and the mountains on the other side.

Very popular at sunset to watch the sun go down behind the mountains. Easy 15 minute bush track walk. (Take a bottle of wine and glasses with you for sunset).

Don’t forget your boogie boards to take advantage of the sand boarding down the dunes or you can hire sandboards for around $20 per hour from Epic Ocean.

 

Yoga

Choose to have a yoga session on your camp doorstep.

$20 per person or $90 for a group booking. What a sensational way to start the day.

Our instructor caters for all levels of fitness and ability.

Massage

We have qualified therapists in town who can come onsite to massage you at your campsite. What luxury. This must be prebooked as they also operate from their premises in Rainbow Beach and may not have availability.

• RAINBOW BEACH HAIR AND BEAUTY

Fire Twirling

Imagine a fire twirling lesson just before sunset and lighting up just as the sun goes down. It really does look amazing and is so much fun.

Our experienced instructors take you through a full safety lesson to teach you the techniques of this art. Minimun 4 people.
