Arrived in Rainbow Beach on 17th January and stayed for two nights, got here and realised one night was probably enough as its a tiny little place!! First thing we did was head to the beach, was quite cloudy so didn't get best impression of it but is nice when sun comes out. Checked out the main street which took all of about ten minutes! Ate in both nights that we stayed there...getting very sick of pasta by the end of it!! Our second day there was better weather so we spent the afternoon sunbathing, was great apart from getting bitten to death by huge ants!! Just stayed around hostel both nights as not much going on other than in the hostels!
On our last morning we went for a walk up to a viewpoint called Carlo Sandblow, took a very scenic, hilly route and nearly passed out getting up there (thinking we might need to get a bit fitter!). Got to sand dunes and was a long way to cliff edge and didn't have time to get out there as had to be back for the bus. Walk back was a lot esaier when we took the more direct route and all downhill!
