“No traffic lights, no roundabouts and no stress” is what I read about our coast the other day. I must admit – traffic is a real shock to system after our easy driving and easy parking in Rainbow. You can even have the beach all to yourself!
Things will become a little busier when school holidays start September 16, you can check out the new eatery Sea Salt@ Rainbow as either end of the main street is still undergoing changes! You’ll notice a few other changes, especially kids will love the new playground.
This month there’s the Rainbow Beach Triathlon on September 2-3, a learn to sail course for kids, and if you love flowers or photography, you can visit the Local Ambulance Committee Annual Flower Show on September 30.
