Inskip Peninsula Recreation Area

Rainbow Beach, Gympie Area

The Inskip Peninsula Recreation Area separates open ocean surf from the sheltered estuary waters of Tin Can Bay and the Great Sandy Strait. This 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. Enjoy wide ocean beaches. Watch sunsets over quiet bay waters. Dogs are permitted in the recreation area, but must be kept on a leash and under control 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.
