Holidays in Inskip Point

Holiday Travel Guide
Rainbow Beach

Pick from wave-rippled ocean beaches or sheltered estuarine waters and swim, fish and camp at this narrow finger of land reaching toward Fraser Island.

Inskip Point is a small peninsula that forms the natural breakwater sheltering Tin Can Bay and Great Sandy Strait. With beautifully sheltered bay waters on one side and open Coral Sea beaches on the other, Inskip Point has a varied coastline with plenty of room for campers and day-trippers. Go fishing in the inlet or explore the trails with a four-wheel drive and find your own secluded corner of Inskip Point.

A central road bisects the point. Follow the road north and appreciate the magnificent views of the Coral Sea to the east. If you feel like a swim in the surf, pick a spot on the golden strip of sand that forms the spine of Inskip Point and jump into the waves. Cast a fishing line into the swell or find a more secluded spot alongside the inlet.

In the heart of the peninsula, you’ll find Inskip Point Recreation Area. This extensive campground and day-use area begins at the small lagoon in the middle of the point and stretches north toward the point’s hooked tip. Follow a network of winding trails and pick from a range of picturesque campgrounds.

The Oaks Campgrounds has sites placed between she-oak trees offering dappled shade and is nearby a surf beach and Pelican Bay. The other four campgrounds are named after shipping events and tragedies. The S.S. Dorrigo Campgrounds has easy road access while the M.V. Sarawak is popular with large groups. Visit the M.V. Natone and M.V. Beagle campgrounds to find campsites nestled beneath coastal trees. Some of the sites here look out toward Fraser Island and the Wide Bay bar. Campgrounds are all equipped with campfire areas, public restrooms and trashcans. Some campgrounds have disability access but you’ll need to bring your own drinking water.

The tip of Inskip Point curves toward Great Sandy Strait and provides easy access to Fraser Island. Jump onboard the Manta Ray Barge and you’ll reach the World Heritage-listed island within 20 minutes.

Inskip Peninsula is approximately a 15-minute drive north from Rainbow Beach. Campgrounds are best accessed with a four-wheel drive except for M.V. Sarawak, which has sites for campervans and trailers. Purchase camping permits online or in Rainbow Beach. Day-trippers can visit anytime for free.
