Double Island Point

Rainbow Beach, Gympie Area

You could say that Double Island Point is one of the Sunshine Coast's best kept secrets. Whether you're looking for a quiet place to camp for a few nights, or the ideal spot to catch some waves with your mates - Double Island Point will not disappoint.

Located just south of Rainbow Beach, the point is a magnet for marine life of every description which is why it is rated one of the top 10 dive spots in Australia. Just off the point you'll find four volcanic submerged pinnacles where scuba divers are often seen exploring the vertical gutters and overhanding ledges. The area is teaming with trevally, cod, coral trout, perch, mackerel, batfish, leopard sharks, mantra rays and loads of grey nurse sharks.
