The walk to the sand blow is really worthwhile . The view at the top is magnificent all across the Pacific Ocean . We went on a rainy day and it was lovely so on a sunny day it must be even better .

We walked up here from the car park, its a long walk from rainbow Beach! People were hang gliding off here and you can sand board (with your own kit), we couldn't fin a slope steep enough to create a good thrill like Stockton sand dunes! Beautiful view though.

If you are around the rainbow beach area, you should consider going to Carlo Sandblow. It is easy to locate as there are sings when you are in the Rainbow beach to guide you to this spot. After a short walk you will see beautiful sand and ocean views and also you can slide on the sand as well.

The hike to get to the Sandblow is only a short stroll and was worth it, we went on an overcast day but would imagine how hot it would get so bring a bottle of water along. The kids loved it and unfortunately we didn't bring a boogie board which would have been great for the kids. Definitely worth a... More

Its approximately a 20 minute walk from town, up a road (follow signs to the Waterview Bistro) to a car park by a water reservoir at the end. Then it's approx 500m walk through some forest and up some steps. There are extensive views both east and west so it is ideal for both sunrise and sunset viewing. The size... More

lovely walk (about 10-15 minutes), some step sections, but easy walk. large open sand dune you can walk up or down, went there at sunset, which would have been lovely, but was overcast with a storm approaching.
