Surf and Sand Safaris Pty Ltd

Glenn Wiggins runs half and full day, guided 4WD tours out of Rainbow Beach and the Sunshine Coast, exploring the attractions – natural and man-made – of the Cooloola Coast.

A former painter turned tour guide, Glenn leads his safari down the beach to the world-renowned cliffs of the coloured sands. With permission from National Parks, he takes small samples of the sands and demonstrates the vivid colours trapped in the oxides by mixing them in the shallows of the ocean’s edge.

From there, the tour heads further down the coast to Double Island Point where Glenn is the only licensed operator out of Rainbow Beach with permission to drive all the way up to the point’s historic lighthouse. Morning or afternoon tea is provided, usually enjoyed in the cool shade of Cooloola National Park rainforest.

Glenn will even collect and drop you off at your Rainbow Beach accommodation. Plantation Resort at Rainbow is a stunning choice for a holiday stay in the tourist town. It offers 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments – right across from the patrolled beach. Or upgrade to a luxury Roof Top Terrace apartment.
