Rainbow Beach

Inskip Peninsula is a narrow, sandy finger of land built up by wind and waves. It forms a natural breakwater at the entrance to Tin Can Inlet and Great Sandy Strait. Inskip is a gateway to World Heritage-listed Fraser Island. Beach she oaks, cypress pine and other coastal trees and shrubs shade the very popular camping areas ringed by open ocean beaches and sheltered estuary shores. All are within 15 minutes drive of Rainbow Beach.

Inskip Peninsula north of Rainbow Beach is a popular camping and fishing area that is important to generations of beach campers and to the local economy.

A section of coastline disappeared into the sea on 26 September 2015, resulting in the loss of a vehicle, van and camper trailer, followed by the immediate temporary closure of two campgrounds and the commissioning of a geotechnical report.

The report identifies that some parts of the coastline are more susceptible to this behaviour than others, and defines low, moderate and high susceptibility zones. After discussion with the consultant engineer, QPWS partitioned off the high susceptibility section of the coastline as a buffer zone where it was recommended that no camping, driving or parking should be permitted

The camping area is mainly behind the dunes. There are some camping areas closer to the water but these are limited and only available for 4WD vehicles. The other area is adjacent to the road and accessible to 2WD only at Dorrigo which is where I booked my camping stay. There are toilet and washing hand facilities at various locations within Dorrigo and one security light at Night.
