Tin Can Bay & Rainbow Beach - Cooloola Coast

Leaving the hustle of the Gold Coast we headed north to Brisbane and then to the lovely Cooloola Coast Region just East of Gympie. This shot is of our campsite at Tin Can Bay...
Between Tin Can Bay and Rainbow beach visitors can stop at 'Carlo Sandblow' which is a large are of sand that is slowly heading inland - very similar to Fraser Island which is just off this coast...
Lee, Joey, & Sam at Carlo's Sandblow with Sandy Strait in the background...
Rainbow Beach is viewed looking south along Carlo's Sandblow. The coloured sands found along this beach are why the beach has its name...
Tom, Joey, & Sam had a crack at sand boarding without much success - too wet...Oh well, worth a try...
Back at Tin Can Bay Lee is preparing to feed the local Dolphins - if they are lucky!! Fish without the chips - no thanks!!
Here she is again...feeding the Dolphin this time...all good fun
Not to be outdone by mum, Joey has a go....if you don't look you don't see them bite your fingers...the Dolphins are quite used to being close to people...
