Inskip Peninsula Recreation Area

Rainbow Beach, Gympie Area

Inskip Peninsula is a narrow, sandy finger of land built up by wind and waves, forming a natural breakwater at the entrance to Tin Can Inlet and Great Sandy Strait.

Close to Rainbow Beach, Inskip is a gateway to World Heritage-listed Fraser Island. Beach she oaks, cypress pine and other coastal trees and shrubs shade the very popular camping areas ringed by open ocean beaches and sheltered estuary shores.

Tin Can Bay is a wetland of international importance. The sand spit is clad in casuarina, cypress pine and other coastal vegetation, providing a great habitat for birds. The beaches and mudflats are roosts for waders and thousands of resident and migratory shorebirds.

Bring your own drinking water and camp in one of four shady camping areas. Dogs are permitted in the recreation area, but must be kept on a leash at all times.

Bring your binoculars to view birds in the early morning or late afternoon. Look for button-quail on the sandy tracks and shorebirds (in summer). Watch for dugong, turtles and dolphins in the bay. You must bring your own firewood for campfires, but best to bring a fuel or gas stove and reduce your use of campfires.
