Bushwalk

Pack a picnic for the short walk into Poona Lake, our kids have swum in it in winter, but it is on the chilly side! Bring your camera – it is a great time of year to spot some local wildlife – kookaburras, goannas and bush turkeys. Or hike to Carlo Sandblow from the NPWS Office. The 360 degree view at the summit is spectacular.

Bring some water or other beverages so you can dawdle by the cliffs and even watch the sunset over Tin Can Bay and the Sandy Straits, before walking downhill into Rainbow Beach via the Sandblow carpark and Cooloola Drive.
