RAINBOW

Welcome to Rainbow

An oasis in the middle of vast agriculture and wildness areas, Rainbow offers unique gardens, a vibrant main street and spectacular hand-painted murals for visitors and locals alike. Taking its name from the lunette “Rainbow Rise” west of town, once covered with wildflowers, the silhouette of palms and silos beckons everyone to enjoy the ‘Metropolis of the Mallee’.

EXPLORE

The Yurunga homestead and Pella Church are not to be missed, with the natural beauties Lake Hindmarsh, Lake Albacutya, Outlet Creek, Wyperfeld National Park and the Birdcage Reserve all offering various outdoor adventures and memories to last a lifetime.

EXPERIENCE

Sit back and relax in the central strip of parkland in the middle of the main street. Visit the spectacular hand-painted murals.
