Double Island Point on the Fraser Coast
Double Island Point is a sandy spit found in the Cooloola National Park. It's not actually an island in any way, but rather the end of sand dune that extends into the ocean. From a distance, the point can appear to look like two islands, which is how it earned its name many years ago from Captain Cook.
The point can only be reached at certain times of the day on either side of low tide on the Great Beach Drive from Noosa or Rainbow Beach. Those making their way to the point will need a permit to be able to drive on the beach as it's in the national park. There are no facilities or shops here, so if you're planning an extended trip you will need to bring your own food and water. Camping is not allowed and there is no accommodation, so visitors must only stay for the day.
From the point, you can enjoy the beauty of the outdoors with hiking and exploring as it is an ideal spot for those that love spending time outside and want to see all the Great Sandy National Park has to offer! The point also has a lighthouse where visitors can enjoy great views of the surrounding area, perhaps even spotting dolphins, sharks or dugongs! It is best in the morning when you can enjoy the rising sun and panoramic views of the surrounding area.
