Searys Creek

Searys Creek is a tranquil spring-fed body of water with a sandy bottom.

What makes it unique is its orange-tinted hues, thanks to the tea-tree tannins that pass through it, which come from the plants around the water.

The creek has become a popular attraction for visitors to relax in on their way back from Rainbow Beach. Its shallow waters make it the ideal spot to take a dip, float away for a few hours, and cool down. The creek bottom is also fun to walk along. A boardwalk has been designed to provide access through two entry points that lead visitors directly to the swimming area.

Searys Creek is one of the most picturesque natural attractions, not just for its orange waters but also because of its lush vegetation, which provides a wonderful contrast of colours. Kids and adults alike find it fascinating to see the fish swimming in the water, though they are harmless and tend to ignore swimmers. However, what most people love about this destination is that it’s genuinely tranquil and peaceful.

The creek makes up part of the Great Sandy National Park, which is a massive 56,000 hectares. It’s open all year long, and there are no entrance fees; visitors can use the picnic tables and toilets within the day-use area found by the entrance. The creek itself is ideal for total relaxation and swimming, but there are also opportunities to mountain bike and surf in the nearby locales.

Not too far away is Rainbow Beach, and visitors can easily explore several destinations within the national park in one day. Rainbow Beach is an iconic attraction famed for its coloured sands; other nearby attractions are Double Island Point, known for the longest wave in Australia.

Searys Creek is a truly magical place filled with adventure.
