Photos from the past... The rocks at Rainbow Beach Qld. Those who know these rocks will know the danger. I took these in about 1990 or late 1980s over an Easter. The kombi photo is looking north, the other photo looking south to give you an idea of the conditions, and the spectator sport. The crossing route is shown where the 2 4wds are driving. the kombi came from the south (Double Island Point area) went to get supplies, then drove back. I spoke to the driver - he may have had a few beers! But on lookers were stunned and amazed. He needed no assistance on both crossings. During this same crossing period waves would build water up to about 3 feet, then ebbs away again. The crossing was all that black rock and a little sand, and of course covered in the ocean. He did is timing well. He also had to drive the soft sand beach exit, but I missed that bit. Never underestimate a kombi off road.
