visitor guide 5 fish (Small)Probably one of Rainbow’s greatest attractions would have to be the abundant opportunity for fishing.  Fishing, in all its styles, is available right on our doorstep.

Beach fishing has unlimited scope with nearly 100kms of beach to choose from.  Varieties include Bream, Whiting, Tailor, Dart, Jew and Flathead.

Estuary fishing in Tin Can Bay Inlet, through the Inskip Point area and up the Great Sandy Strait is perfect for those with a boat or the wish to hire one.  Access is from an efficient boat ramp at Carlo Point.  Another ramp is located at Bullock Point.
