Make a holiday villa in Rainbow Beach, Australia your home away from home

Rainbow Beach is a coastal down in southeastern Queensland, set in a region of unspoiled natural beauty, with beaches, rainforests, lakes and heathland all found close by. Rainbow Beach self-catering holiday villas would suit holidaymakers with a taste for adventure – there are plenty of intrepid activities on offer, all in a stunning location.

Things to do in Rainbow Beach, Australia

One of the main attractions around Rainbow Beach holiday accommodation is the fantastic coastal scenery. Practically on your doorstep are literally miles of almost untouched sandy shoreline. The sand dunes nearby are what give the town its name, as the rich mineral content creates a spectrum of colours – it’s well worth making the short walk to take in this unique sight. In the waters off the coast here you’ll have a host of choices for things to do. There are ship wrecks to be seen, and you could head out for some fishing. More daring souls might like to have a go at swimming with sharks, available close by at World Rock. More friendly can be kept with the local dolphins, either on a feeding expedition or to get in the water and swim with them.

Inland there’s just as much to see and do close to holiday rentals in Rainbow Beach. There’s rainforest to be explored, while you could take an off-road trip up to Double Island Point, which was named by Captain Cook as he sailed past it in 1770. It’s a headland with wonderful views and a lighthouse. Fraser Island would be another great choice for a day-trip. This huge sand island is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and can be reached by ferry and then explored by 4x4. The island’s lakes are considered particularly impressive.

Places to visit on holiday in Rainbow Beach, Australia

At Noosa, about 90 minutes south of Rainbow Beach self-catering villas you’ll find some fantastic surfing beaches, with a number of schools found locally to help you find your feet. Other activities available here include scuba diving and tours of the nearby Glasshouse Mountains.

At Rainbow Beach holiday accommodation you’ll be able to expect hot or pleasantly warm temperatures throughout the year. The coolest months are June, July and August when average temperatures reach just over 20 degrees and there’s far less rainfall. Summers here tend to be hot and humid.

Cheap flights to Rainbow Beach, Australia
