Photographer's Note

One of the most amazing finds on my weekend to Rainbow Beach was Carlo Sand Blow.

Named by Captain Cook after one of his deck crew named Carlo. The unique 杜oonscape sand mass covers over 15 hectares and overlooks the towering coloured sands. There is a walking track which passes through woodlands that leads to this expansive natural sand blow.

It痴 an excellent spot to watch the sunrise or sunset. The 360 degree views are spectacular, to the East has magnificent views of the ocean. To the S.E. is Double Island Point and the cliffs of coloured sand. Fraser Island and Inskip Point are to the North, while Tin Can Bay and the Great Sandy Straits lie to the West.

If you visit Rainbow Beach this location is a must.

I went back to get a picture of the sunset that night and there was a wedding taking place right in the middle of the sand blow, what a spectacular place to get married. The groom was from America and the bride a local. They didn't have a photographer and when they saw my nice camera they asked if I could take some pictures for them. Well I got some nice shots of the wedding party but totally missed the opportunity to get a nice sunset shot... gee I guess I will have to go back :-)
