Rainbow Beach Hotel & Accommodation

Named after the rainbow-coloured sand dunes which surround the settlement, Rainbow Beach has emerged as a popular tourist spot in south-eastern Queensland just east of Gympie. Perfectly situated between Fraser Island and Noosa, this beach haven has everything for those looking for a beach adventure or an idyllic tropical escape.

Accessible from major hubs Brisbane and Maroochydore, Rainbow Beach is an easy spot to get to whether you're travelling from a domestic airport or overseas.

Rainbow Beach accommodation can be as luxurious or basic as you want, ranging from some of the most acclaimed five-star resorts on the Sunshine Coast to more affordable choices within walking distance of the region's beautiful beaches. Each fitted with the usual amenities and offering spectacular views, accommodation in Rainbow Beach can be situated right within the unspoilt wilderness of the region or towards the beach town's main streets.

With miles of golden sand to explore, you'll never find yourself short of something to do. From swimming with dolphins to trekking through rainforests and shrubland, the region's abundance of diverse natural beauty will prove breathtaking to even the most seasoned travellers.

Staying at Rainbow Beach puts you in close proximity the spectacular scenery of Fraser Island, the largest island on the east coast of Australia. On Fraser Island visitors can swim in crystal clear lakes, enjoy panoramic views from lookout points, relax on sandy beaches and even explore the Maheno Wreck, a large rusted shipwreck washed upon the shore which must be seen to be believed.

Rainbow Beach and Fraser Island are both renowned as Australia's best 4WD spots where you'll be granted access to drive across the island's diverse terrain, from off-road trails to large sand dunes. For adrenaline junkies, locally operated activities let you see Rainbow Beach from its sky, seas and sand with a range of activities and hire equipment. From diving to golf to para gliding, there's something for everyone in one of Queensland's premier adventure sports destinations.

To immerse in one of Queensland's best spots, where sand, water and rainforests meet, book yourself Rainbow Beach accommodation and discover one of the most exciting travel destinations on the Sunshine Coast.
