Situated between the Sunshine Coast and Fraser Coast, Rainbow Beach is fast becoming a crowd favourite for Queensland’s Schoolies. Providing a more relaxed experience than some of the other state Schoolies destinations, Rainbow Beach is the ideal place to unwind and bask in the glory of the natural beauty of the Cooloola Coast.
This part of Queensland is vastly untouched and absolutely spectacular, offering gorgeous beaches, rainforests, freshwater lakes and the famous Great Sandy National Park. Lovers of the outdoors have come to the right place, where you can enjoy outstanding scenery during nature hikes and soaking in the clear, crystal waters of the ocean. Wildlife here is plentiful, with dolphins, turtles and whales up for spotting. Rainbow Beach is home to the famous Coloured Sands, and also provides a gateway to Fraser Island, which is only a 10 minute ferry ride away.
Rainbow Beach is a great Schoolies choice for those adventure seekers amongst us. The beaches here are patrolled and provide a fantastic place to take a surf lesson, go scuba diving, or bite the ultimate bullet and go paragliding or hang-gliding. With so many fantastic outdoor activities right on your doorstep the possibilities are endless!
Nighttime is fantastic for socialising with other Schoolies in a safe and friendly environment. Parties here are more low-key than their Gold Coast counterparts, but that doesn’t mean they’re not a ridiculous amount of fun. Schoolies have been known to flock to the beach in the hundreds, throwing impromptu beach parties that are loved by all.
