You will marvel at nature’s beautiful landscape as you travel to Double Island Point. You’ll see 200m coloured sand cliffs with over 72 colours formed from iron oxide and leached vegetable dyes. Or a more romantic version, Aboriginal legend tells of a spirit who takes on the image of a rainbow. When he fought over a woman, he fell against the cliffs, leaving a permanent display.

Tour guides reveal best kept secrets on the region including a visit to Cooloola’s unique, virtually unknown rainforest, pristine tranquil beaches and access to Double Island Point to see the Lighthouse. Signage gives you an idea of what life was like for the isolated lighthouse keepers, their families and their teachers.
