Rainbow Beach will be your base for the next two days. There’s plenty to do here, including marvelling at the secluded beaches, exploring the national parks and enjoying a few water sports.

Days 4 - 5

Hervey Bay

On day four you will drive to Hervey Bay, known as the jewel in Queensland’s crown and also well-known for its brilliant whale watching opportunities – thousands of humpback whales migrate here from June to November. You’ll then have time to enjoy the area, visiting the scenic piers, dipping in and out of cafes, or enjoying leisurely water sports including kayaking, snorkelling and game fishing.
