Festival of Small Halls, Big Summer Blow Out

Whew, school holidays are over in Queensland, and the long weekend, and wasn’t it a busy one?

Just announced is the date for the Festival of Small Halls, on November 28 at Rainbow Beach Hall. Blair Dunlop from England and Aussie duo, Hat Fitz and Cara will perform. Buy your tickets now!

Also released are the headliners for the Big Summer Blow-Out on February 29 at the Sports Club. Can you believe we’ll have Darryl Braithwaite (pictured), Thirsty Merc, Dragon, Wendy Matthews, Reece Mastin, Caitlyn Shadbolt and Valentina Brave, just across the road to finish off summer?

Summer starts with Country at the Beach, also at the Sports Club on December 7 – and it has all booked out. So don’t miss out the chance to see ‘Horses’ performed live, and it will be great to have Thirsty Merc here again.

In the mean time, now the kids are back at school – come and relax! You can stay poolside, or enjoy our beaches, creek or lake. Watch the sun set at the Sandblow, and soak up the serenity as you walk up the beach.

Learn to SCUBA dive

Did you know that Wolf Rock is an internationally renowned location for scuba diving?

Wolf Rock Dive have now opened up adventure days for novices – Discover Scuba Dives or DSD, previously you had to have your qualifications to join in the fun.

One of the owners, James, said, “The whole course runs in one day – a theory component, basic concepts of SCUBA diving and safety. Then you go to the swimming pool – apply theory to practice.”

First you answer a medical questionnaire – if there are no obvious medical issues, you are right to start.

Please note if you are over 45 years, and a smoker OR if you have asthma, you need a dive medical first. Speak to your Doctor before you visit Rainbow.

Said James, “In the pool, you gain confidence in practice skills to build confidence like the regulator out of the mouth and putting it back in and clearing your mask of water.”

“Once you’ve done theory and the pool – you’re ready to go on an open water dive – we take you out on the boat, and we shallow dive in the open water – with the animals.”

The last group saw turtles, gropers and rays! These introductory dives are held in the shallower water, near the cliffs of Double Island Point. Participants can also snorkel at the same time.

Please note, there are minimum numbers, and it is weather permitting. So book in as soon as you arrive.

James says that one-on-ones are available – but they are expensive. It was good to know only 3 people are required for a course to go ahead, and you can have up to 8 people attend. 

You can book direct, give James and the team a call on 07 5486 8004.

Getaway Makeover is Complete

Getaway MakeoverThe biggest news for the Getaway is the completion of the renovations! And doesn’t the new fence look fabulous? It makes a real difference as people drive into town.

“It has been a huge project,” said Manager, Heatley Gilmore. “First we started with a new driveway, which was done in stages to accomodate guests.”

Next was the painting of each of the 10 buildings. “As we are surrounded by the bush, colours were chosen to represent our beautiful natural environment. A landscape architect was consulted on the upgrade, with the body corporate involved in choosing the final three colours.” Even the signage of each building was revamped and modernised.

The team at Rainbow Getaway also spruced up the garden, said Heatley: “Unfortunately council had to remove the tree out the front, but we have invested significantly in planting more throughout the complex.”

“The pool fence was replaced with black tubular panels. The same aluminium panelling was then used to surround the complex, with timber posts, after removing the old wooden palings. This was topped off with a hardwood fencing feature at the entrance.”

There are plans for more greenery in the gardens – in fact they look so good, a guest has asked to host their wedding ceremony in the grounds.

Pretty soon we’ll be updating photos on our website – but if you haven’t yet seen the makeover, when you next visit, you will be impressed!
