Hi all,

Been a while since i was around this site, but have just got back from a trip to Double Island Point, which has changed quite a lot since i was last up that way.

We left from Noosa North Shore about half way through the ebb tide, and after a day up the top (and nearly losing a 'cruiser on the rocks at rainbow, I wish those pedestrians would keep out of the way) we came back about halfway through the incoming tide.

Interestingly, much of the sand on the eastern beach has been washed away, leaving a 2ft bank on the western edge, and a much lower gradient on the rest of the beach. This meant that even halfway through a moderate to large tide, we were ducking and weaving around the waves all the way down the beach coming home.

The 2 sets of rocks east of rainbow are still there, but certainly passable as long as you can either see where you are going or have a look first. The beach is quite a lot narrower than I remember though. The freshwater track is still passable to soft roaders if the driver is good enough.

All in all, no reason to decide against a trip, just be prepared to use freshwater if the tide is up and you are trying to get between rainbow and the point.
