Walk straight down Rainbow Beach Road, past the pub and past the Surf Club with the glorious views…directly down the surf club steps and onto the beach. Look right – if the tide is up and rocks are wet turn left and walk towards Inskip Point. Enjoy views of Fraser Island along the way. Turn around half way (or find the the entry to Rainbow Shores) and return.
If it is close to low tide – turn right -you are generally able to find your way through the rocks and the Coloured sand cliffs are an easy walk away. Again, retrace your steps back to the Tower. Stop for a drink at the picnic areas on the beach. Continue up the stairs closest to the Tower. Turn left before you hit the park, follow the path either past the War Memorial or stop to admire the propellor or look out and views. Collect the paper on the way home through the Main Street and walk until you reach the Getaway. Leave early enough and yours will be the first footsteps in the sand for the day.
