Projecting out from Queensland’s mainland, Rainbow Bay’s rarity sings. A hilly masterpiece of beaches, rivers and rock walls gave life to a small village of ocean dwellers, casual conversers and refined thinkers. Discover the peninsula below.
01 Rainbow Bay’s north facing aspect enlists it as one of the rarest and highly rated swim destinations in Australia. Enjoy the clear, tranquil waters under at your leisure.
02 Rounding the corner South, past the legendary Rainbow Bay Surf club you’ll step into another terrain entirely. Quintessentially Queensland dark rocks line the beach in front of a growing swell at Snapper and Froggies Beach.
03 Walk the steep hill up to Point Danger, feel the wind strengthen as your viewline extends to the Northern Rivers. The Captain Cook Memorial stands here, one foot in Queenland and the other in New South Wales.
04 When the ocean beckons you closer, continue down the hill to find one of Australia’s best surf destinations at Duranbah. A melting pot of leisure and coastal lifestyle – leafy nooks, rocks walls, boardwalks and rivermouths are to be discovered.
05 To complete the peninsula tour, follow the river mouth inland to Tweed. Pristine parks, boats and fresh seafood institutions line the calm waters. A new locale entirely, moments from your doorstep.
