Photographer's Note

Rainbow Beach is a coastal town in south-eastern Queensland. The town's name derives from the rainbow-coloured sand dunes surrounding the town. From Rainbow Beach you can access Fraser Island by a short trip on a vehicle ferry.

Double Island Point, pictured here, is a popular destination for 4WD enthusiasts and is located east of town. There is no road access to the point, but four-wheel drive vehicles can go along the beach, either from the township of Rainbow Beach, or the longer way up from Noosa. The point was named by Captain Cook when he passed it on 18 May 1770, "on account of its shape". In 1884 a lighthouse was built on the point.

I took this photo just before sunrise from the roof top terrace of the unit we stayed in at Rainbow Shores Resort. Due to misreading the tide chart, I never got to the point. You can only access the beach by 4 wheel drive when the tide is out. Looks like I will have to take another trip :-)
