Consider a horse ride on the beach for the holidays

Consider a horse ride on the beach for the holidays

Australia’s number one beach for winter!

Once again Rainbow Beach is lauded as a top ten beach! On it is listed as No. 1 Australia’s best beach to visit in winter. Where else, it says can you canter and 4WD along a beach? It forgot to mention the Fishing Classic, and there is a lot more you can do in our school holidays.

Celebrate NAIDOC Week with Indigenous Culture and Stories for primary school age children and their families.

There will be a choice of craft activities using paint and natural materials to create some sculptures, wall hangings and musical instruments.

We can provide aprons to protect clothing, but it is better to wear old clothing so it does not matter if a little paint gets on them.

It’s free and no bookings needed – on Wednesday, July 8 10.30-11.30am at Tin Can Bay Library and 2-3pm at Rainbow Beach Library.
