Welcome to Rainbow Beach – Queensland

Welcome to the new Australia Work Pack email giving you top local tips for your travel and time in Australia. This week’s spotlight is on Rainbow Beach – the entry to Fraser Island and the 41,000 hectare Cooloola National Park.

Fraser Island

The World Heritage site of Fraser Island is just 15 minutes from Rainbow Beach. You can only access Fraser Island by 4WD and the vehicular barges operating out of Inskip Point. On the island you’ll get to enjoy rainforests, lakes and beach driving.

The uninterrupted white beaches, colourful sand cliffs, freshwater lakes, ancient rainforests and crystal-clear creeks all contribute to what makes this a World Heritage Site.

Fraser Island boasts the most complete sequence of coastal dune systems in the world and they are still evolving.
