Could have spent all day here in this area. Rainbow beach is a lovely town and the beach front is beautiful. We could have stayed forever. The beach is beautiful with lovely views and soft sand.

Inskip point would have to be my most favourite of camping sites in Queensland. Nestled outside Rainbow Beach, some 3 hours north of Brisbane this beautiful peace of heaven is just what the soul needs. Multiple camping sites available catering for 4wd, cars, caravans etc......More
