Wander along Rainbow Beach and discover a natural ‘art gallery’, where wind and rain constantly re-sculpt cliffs of coloured sands. Over thousands of years, iron-rich minerals have stained the sand with a complex array of yellow, brown and red hues, while pure white sand has been leached of all nutrients.

Walk south from Rainbow Beach township and you’ll soon begin to see the spectacularly-eroded cliff lines of swirling coloured sands. Marvel at the magical ‘earthy’ rainbow created by the mixing of sands of different colours. The cliffs extend along the beach to Double Island Point so you can walk as far as you wish before retracing your steps.
