OUR AREA

OUR AREA

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.

They are:

Inskip
Peninsula

Double Island/Teewah

Fraser
Island

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.

CAMPING PERMITS

  • Before camping in a park, forest or reserve, you must obtain a camping permit and pay your camping fees.
  • Most camping areas can be booked online, at an over-the-counter booking office or by phone.
  • There is a high demand for some camping areas so book early to avoid disappointment. 

EQUIPMENT HIRE

  • We have set about removing the barriers from experiencing camping.
  • For those who love camping but not setting up and packing up, need never to worry again.
  • For those heading to Fraser Island, you can hire your 4WD in Rainbow Beach and pick up your camping equipment on your way through to barge over to the Island.
