Planning to visit Rainbow Beach on the east coast of Australia? Head up to the Carlo Sandblow for spectacular views of the coast and a beautiful sunset.

This 120m-high sand dune is where the National Paragliding Championships are held every January and it’s easy to see why travellers flock here.

Pink clouds drift across the horizon, rainbow-coloured cliffs tower above the ocean and the windswept dunes are perfect for sandboarding.

Back at camp, enjoy a barbecue with fellow backpackers, snuggle up round the camp fire or watch a movie in the TV room. Keep an eye out for kangaroos in the woods, Blade the dog (who is on heat) and any other creepy crawlies that might wonder into the camp.
