Three new murals have appeared in the last few weeks in the popular seaside destination of Rainbow Beach. Situated east of Gympie or north from Noosa, via The Great Beach Drive.
Next time you are in Rainbow Beach, check out the NEW murals by talented artist, James Ellis.
Go on a trail – the first you will see is Ocean Breeze Seafoods on Rainbow Beach Road as you drive into town. Stop in and say hi to Sandy, she loves that kids say she has the best chips in town! Yummy seafood, too – cooked or fresh.
She supports local fishers, so you can taste genuine Rainbow Beach and Tin Can Bay sourced fish. Take a photo with their Big Marlin!
Turn left at Carlo Road (the first street on the left) and you’ll see the latest mural – a new 4WD beach scene. A typical local scene decorates Rainbow Beach Pizza and Grill at the IGA Rainbow Beach complex.
The mural features the owner, Sean’s family at Double Island Point, looking back towards Rainbow Beach and the famous Coloured Sands! Sean is a talented chef who knows how to make great pizzas. His ribs and pasta are delish as well.
Then keep driving towards Carlo Point, on the corner of Karoonda Road, there’s another big fish at Gardiner Fisheries.
Very appropriate because the owner, Drew and his team are all avid fishers and don’t mind giving valuable tips to customers keen to catch their own. He also has the only fish cleaning station in town (and donations go to a worthy cause).
Even the primary school has some new murals by talented James.
Plus there is an older mural of a monkey holding a brolly, on Spectrum Street. You can see from the main street as you drive into town, on the other side of the ‘Centre Block’, coach stop and community hall.
Finish up with the rainbow painted steps, below the playground on the northern side of the Surf Club. Or park at the beach, and follow the path to the steps. With all of Rainbow Beach’s beauty in beach and bush – the Rainbow Steps are the most popular photographed Instagram location!
