A wander through coastal woodland of Scribbly Gum & Banksia
Cooloola section of the Great Sandy National Park, near Rainbow Beach, Queensland
Once at threat from sand-mining, this stunning area stretches from the north shore of the Noosa River, along beaches backed by high dunes, open wallum heathland, woodlands of scribbly gum and banksia, shady blackbutt forests, rainforests and tranquil lakes, to the mangrove lined fish habitats of the Tin Can Bay inlet. The coloured sands, Carlo Sand Blow and Double Island Point lighthouse are popular attractions. Our family explored the area over the school holidays.
