Rainbow Beach

Welcome to Rainbow Beach

Rainbow Beach is a coastal rural town located in the Gympie Region, popular as a tourist destination and as a gateway to Fraser Island. Famous for its rainbow-coloured sand dunes surrounding the settlement where the wonderful sand colours come from the minerals in the sand.
