Reviewed 17 February 2016

For a start, Rainbow Beach is one of the most underrated & stunningly beautiful locations in Australia, well known to the 4wd & camping lovers of the world, but not quite as much to the rest of the Oz, for which I am grateful! Note - if you enjoy glitzy shops & nightlife, you'll be disappointed. But if you love...

This was our first holiday without children so it was kinda like a second honeymoon for us. And what an awesome way to celebrate. The resort was perfection for us! The apartment was beautifully set out with lots of room to move, with quality appliances supplied. If you were lucky to stay in 1 of the penthouse apartments (as we...

Soo convenient, was right in the centre of town. Shops, pub, beach right at your doorstep. Room was beautiful, and so spacious. We stayed in a 2 bedroom roof top terrace, and it was great. Pitty that the rooftop terrace wasn't undercover (it was raining) but the views were wonderful! The facilities were very clean, and the whole resort was...

I stayed here with a group of friends for 3 nights, and was a perfect location to explore all of the areas and get to Fraser Island. There are restaurants and cafes in easy distance. The shops are just over the road, and have everything you need! I would stay here again without a second thought!

We have visited Rainbow Beach many times over 15 years but usually camp or stay just out of town. We stayed just after new year. What we loved the most was location, everything at your fingertips. This was our first time at Plantation Resort. The service was friendly. Our room was north facing and over looked the street which gets...

Had never been to Rainbow before but will definitely revisit. Rooms are spacious, beds were super comfortable. Had an ocean-facing unit with the added bonus of the roof top with the BBQ which we made good use of. Loved our stay!

Rainbow Beach is a spectacular location, and there is no better way to explore the area than a stay at the Plantation Resort. Rainbow Beach is only 30 minutes further from Brisbane than Noosa, yet it retains the small town appeal which Noosa offered in the '70s. The main street is one block long, with the usual bakery, newsagent, grocery...
