Rainbow Beach, part of the Sunshine Coast, is fortunate to be surrounded by National Parks and even more fortunate to be allowed to camp there in our Protected Area called Inskip Peninsula. As our name suggests, Rainbow Beach is a beachside town. We are a popular launching pad for visiting Fraser Island. We have many options to choose from when deciding where to camp.
For convenience, we have tried to break those choices down into 3 categories.
QPWS also manage our surrounding National Parks. We are surrounded by the Great Sandy National Park which includes the Northern Cooloola Sections and Fraser Island, Double Island Point, Teewah Beach and Freshwater.
