Discover Rainbow


Rainbow is a special country town – situated in a rich agricultural district, right on the edge of the Big Desert and its vast Mallee wilderness areas.

Visitors are welcomed by the vibrant main street and its unique gardens. And if you stay a little longer you will soon discover how much more Rainbow has to offer. Historic buildings are found alongside state-of-the-art education and healthcare facilities, and our shopping strip is sure to surprise. Rainbow is also the perfect base to explore the beautiful Wyperfeld National Park as well as nearby Lake Hindmarsh and Lake Albacutya.
