Book Now - Great Beach Drive Overnight Escape

This overnight tour travels more than 70km of iconic beaches with our vehicles travelling right on the sand, so you can soak in the scenery and wildlife, such as dolphins, manta rays, turtles, soldier crabs, birdlife, birds of prey and whales (whale season is June-October).
Lunch is at the Rainbow Beach Surf Club, which boasts stunning views of the Pacific Ocean and Fraser Island. From here guests check into their accommodation and have the freedom to explore Rainbow Beach at their own pace.

Rainbow Ocean Palms Resort offers the complete Rainbow Beach experience with its location directly adjacent to Great Sandy National Park, Carlo Sandblow and a network of walking tracks to explore.

You will arrive at the resort early afternoon, which allows for an afternoon of relaxation by the stunning wet-edge resort pool, self-guided exploring in the national park or a leisurely beach walk. A scenic walk starting right at the door of Rainbow Ocean Palms takes you to spectacular Carlo Sandblow to view the sunset. The sandblow is also the perfect vantage point to photograph the amazing coloured sand cliffs sweeping the length of the Great Beach Drive to Double Island Point.
