Rainbow Beach, 12 November 2021

Rainbow Beach Community Hall, QLD, Butchulla and Kabi Kabi Country

The Rainbow Beach Community Hall stands near the intersection of lands traditionally owned by the Butchulla and Kabi Kabi Peoples.

What do you find when you reach the end of the rainbow? The folks in Rainbow Beach know – it’s a pot of golden sand, standing on a sapphire-blue ocean and fringed by ancient, multi-coloured sand dunes.

With all this vibrant colour and natural treasure, it only makes sense that the Rainbow Beach Community Hall is full of light and simple finishes. The building is a signature design by local architect Walter Dobkins and is modern, but in harmony with the surrounds. It’s got a spacious earthy look, balanced with innovation. Which is kind of funny, because that’s a great way to describe the rest of this modern, eco-friendly town full of entrepreneuring locals with big visions, big hearts and a keen connection to all that surrounds them – including each other. Rainbow Beach is also the gateway to K’Gari and the UNESCO Great Sandy Biosphere, and home to the Carlo Sandblow.

Festival of Small Halls returns to Rainbow Beach on Friday, 12 November, 2021 with Andrea Kirwin and Tullara.

Opening the show will be local act Aidran Van de Vorst!

Aido’s journey into music goes back decades. He has been part of bands, played solo – he is the kind of musician that he always ready for a jamming session. 

With his heavy-handed guitar style and powerful vocals Aido’s raw acoustic folk rock has an “old school busker” feel and is sure to get your toes taping. 

After 9yrs in South West WA playing at wineries and breweries in a duo with his wife Tina and playing bass in the TEE TOP REFUGE’S , Aido has moved back home to southeast QLD and set up in Rainbow Beach where he has been entertaining the community with a variety of local artists at various venues around town.
