Every so often you stumble across a hidden gem that takes you by surprise. Having lived in the region for so long I guess I thought I had seen it all. How wrong was I.

Cooloola National Park is next to Rainbow Beach on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland. An easy walk through the national park takes you out to Carlo Sand Blow, another fantastic and ever changing landscape.

P&O Cruises is starting operations into Mooloolaba this August so regions like these will become more accessible to cruising guests. It’s worth the effort to get there. Believe me, I’ll be back before too long.

I’ll let the video do the rest.
