Rainbow Beach is reputed for being the best access to the famous Fraser Island (K’gari). But if you have time, don’t be too impatient to reach K’Gari and stay a bit in Rainbow Beach: it’s also worth a visit! It’s one of my favourite destinations as a weekend away from Brisbane.
Mount Barney hike is challenging but fun and offers spectacular views on the Scenic Rim and further. Go there prepared: it’s not for everyone!
