Double Island Point, Cooloola, Great Sandy National Park

Rainbow Beach, Gympie Area

An iconic feature of the Cooloola Recreation Area in Great Sandy National Park, Double Island Point is a scenic headland offering mesmerising views along the beach and out to sea.

The easiest way to visit Double Island Point is by four-wheel-drive vehicle along Cooloola's beach drive between Noosa North Shore and Rainbow Beach. Explore the Double Island Point lighthouse walk for great views or launch a canoe from the sheltered northern beaches of Double Island Point.

If you are camping overnight in Cooloola's Teewah Beach or Freshwater camping areas, take the short drive or walk along the beach to explore the scenic headland.

If you are feeling energetic, consider the Double Island Point walk, a full day hike from Rainbow Beach. Follow the historic lighthouse telegraph line along the high coastal dunes, looking for old telegraph posts still standing among the blackbutt trees. Then splash in the calm lagoon at the base of Double Island Point headland and watch surfers catching the long, rolling waves. Climb the steep track to the Double Island Point lighthouse to gaze at sweeping views over the ocean and coast to the north and south, before your return journey.
