Rainbow Beach is a town in transition. It was once a quiet and idyllic holiday, and they boast that it is an ‘eco-tourism’ destination has had to take in multi-storey beachside apartments and a feeling that it is rapidly becoming upmarket and fashionable. Enjoy great views of the coast as you go, with a stop to visit Snakes Downunder Reptile Park and Zoo, where you’ll find a range of Australian reptiles and native animals.
The entire area is covered in sand and this results in spectacular dunes and dramatically beautiful coloured sands which have probably been forming since the last ice age. All the visitor has to do is a park near the Surf Club, walk down the steps, and head north for about two kilometres before they reach cliffs, some up to 200 metres in height, of coloured sand.
Local Aboriginal Legend

After checking into Kelly’s Beach Resort, enjoy a free guided snorkel training at the rock pool in Bargara, or choose from a variety of optional activities including surfing lessons, swimming in an area known for turtles, or visiting Mon Repos, where the turtle conservation centre is located.
