It’s a world away, yet so close

Noosa Life and Style - - THINGS TO DO -

Pic­ture this: driv­ing down a beach high­way – fresh salty air fill­ing you with a sense of free­dom and ex­hil­a­ra­tion – smooth sand as far as the eye can see with the ocean on one side and spec­tac­u­lar coloured sand for­ma­tions on the other.

Rain­bow Beach and Fraser Is­land are must-see des­ti­na­tions. The best way to ex­plore these pris­tine ar­eas is by 4WD. The Ad­ven­ture Cen­tre 4WD Hire in Rain­bow Beach are spe­cial­ists in de­sign­ing amaz­ing hol­i­days to both of these des­ti­na­tions. Pro­vid­ing self-drive 4WD’s and camp­ing equip­ment if re­quired.

Rain­bow Beach’s coloured sand cliffs have 72 dif­fer­ent colours of sand. View them all while trav­el­ling the beach high­way to Dou­ble Is­land Point – a great van­tage point for spot­ting ma­rine wildlife such as dol­phins, tur­tles, sharks, rays and from June to Novem­ber there are hump­back whales. On the way stop at Hon­ey­moon Bay, a beau­ti­ful area, with la­goon-like in­lets per­fect for chil­dren to swim in. Also, the home of the long­est be­gin­ner surf wave in Aus­tralia.

High­lights of the World Her­itage-listed Fraser Is­land in­clude Lake McKen­zie with its white sil­ica sand and fresh blue wa­ter; Cen­tral Sta­tion and Pile Val­ley where rain­for­est grows up to 200m di­rectly out of the sand; Eli Creek, the largest creek on the eastern side of the is­land, a per­fect place for fam­ily to re­lax for the day and The Cham­pagne Pools – rock­pools that are nat­u­ral salt­wa­ter spas.

The Ad­ven­ture Cen­tre is a fam­ily-run busi­ness with years of lo­cal knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence. They pride them­selves on de­liv­er­ing per­sonal ser­vice, de­sign­ing hol­i­days to suit each in­di­vid­ual cus­tomer. The ma­jor­ity of their cus­tomers have never driven a 4WD ve­hi­cle be­fore so don’t let that limit you. A com­pre­hen­sive ve­hi­cle safety brief­ing is pro­vided to en­sure you have the con­fi­dence to tackle the largest sand is­land in the world.
