After a long 15-hour overnight bus journey, I finally arrived in Rainbow Beach. I was able to sleep most of the bus ride from the exhaustion and saved myself a night of accommodation in the process.
First impressions. Rainbow Beach is small, like tiny. Like they don’t even have a McDonald’s or a Woolworth’s to buy snacks. The beach is nice and the waves are long, perfect for learning to surf. I had a huge breakfast along the Main Street and walked on the beach for an hour until it was time to check-in to my hostel.
