Fishy fun for young and young at heart
I've never been a big fan of fishing until I had kids. There is something about the simplicity of fishing- the patience it requires, the anticipation of a bite and the unmitigated joy when a child reels something, anything, up on their line.

If we are on a driving holiday we always make sure to pack the poles and try to find a spot to throw in a line. Carlo Point, at Rainbow Beach, was a perfect place to spend a morning with our lines in the water and happy kids by our side.

If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles.

Carlo Point is a short drive North of Rainbow Beach. There are a range of camping and accomodation options available if you want to stay on site. There are also fishing boats and house boats available to hire. Carlo Point Boat Hire has bait, ice and drinks available for your convenience. Carlo Point is also the departure point for several deep sea fishing and diving charters.

We opted to keep it simple and fish from the boat ramp. One word of caution- the sand flies are really active in this area so be sure to pack some insect repellant.

Waiting to hook a big one!

Rainbow Beach is often referred to as the gateway to Fraser Island, the World Heritage listed island off of Queensland's Cooloola Coast. But Rainbow Beach has so much more to offer than a quick barge trip to Fraser Island. It is a destination in itself.
