Take a day out Beach Driving

At low tide take advantage of beach driving Rainbow Beach, check out the beautiful coloured sands, and at the point enjoy the nature made lake one side or surf the other for a different day out. From here you can take the Leisha track to the other side of Double Island Point, heading south. Not far south from here, your can take the Freshwater 4WD Track which brings you out 5kms out of Rainbow Beach on the main road in. The freshwater track is an alternative when the tides don't suit or are too high at Rainbow Beach, or simply to spend the day at the point, and travel home on the Freshwater track. Be certain to check with locals the state of the track as sometimes it can have deep sand. Otherwise, a great alternative to the beach, a nice scenic rainforest track.


Rainbow Beach is a relaxing small township, where you can wind down very quickly. Take a good book, and alternate between the beach and the private back yard on a sunlounger with a bush outlook.

What makes this house unique

Enjoy the comfort of home away from home, an easy property to live in for small families, couples, 2 x couples so 4 adults, as well as your welcome furry friend. We as owners enjoy the beach with our french bulldog x pug, can walk for miles up the beach to have it to ourselves, not over crowded like coastal towns nearer to Brisbane, retaining that untouched beach village appeal.

Ideal accommodation for our weekend at Rainbow. Clean and comfortable, and the shower was absolute heaven after a cold, rainy day on the beach! We will definitely be back!

Excellent property for the price.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Two adults and two children fit comfortably into this small house. The pooch had a well fenced yard. It was very clean and tidy with options to eat inside and out. Easy walk to everything. Thanks for a great little holiday.

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

Had a really great stay at the swans nest, the property is a short walk from everything in town and the owners were very helpful in providing a map prior to our stay so we were able to quickly suss out shortcuts and routes to the beach and shops. The property is clean and tidy and it has all you could want. Would highly recommend it.
