Discover the Magic of Rainbow Beach, through a story of Culture, Nature, and Community.

Rainbow Beach, nestled between the majestic Cooloola Recreation Area in the Great Sandy National Park and the tranquil waters of the Pacific Ocean, is a beautiful location – with a character in its own right in our story.

This picturesque coastal town, with its colorful sands and rich heritage, forms the backdrop for the adventures of Sofia and Matisse, two children whose lives are deeply connected with this enchanting place.

While Rainbow Beach officially became a town in 1965, its history is as layered as the famous coloured sands that adorn its shores. This area, steeped in cultural significance and natural beauty, has witnessed the ebb and flow of time, carrying stories that date back to ancient times. Our book, "A Rainbow Story with Sofia and Matisse" aims to bringing to life the tales whispered by the wind and waves.

The history of Rainbow Beach is not without its scars. The once rampant sand mining, which threatened to mar its natural splendor, is a chapter in its modern history. Our narrative doesn't shy away from these harder truths, but rather uses them to teach valuable lessons about resilience, respect for nature, and the power of community.

Today, Rainbow Beach stands as an example of community spirit.

It's a place where people of all ages and backgrounds come together, much like the characters in our story. Sofia and Matisse, born and raised here, represent the heart and soul of Rainbow Beach – a small town with a big heart, where every resident contributes to its unique charm.

Embark on a journey with Sofia and Matisse as they explore the wonders of their hometown, learn from its history, and discover the environmental treasures it holds.

"A Rainbow Story with Sofia and Matisse" is a children's book that opens a window into a world where every grain of sand has a story to tell.
