Rainbow Beach

Rainbow Beach takes its name from its coloured cliffs, created in Aboriginal legend when the rainbow spirit of the gods, Yiningie, was killed in a fight, spreading his colours across the rock. There's not much happening in the town itself, but it's from here that you can dive Wolf Rock to see sharks.
