The Krauchi family (Rainbow Shores Pty Ltd) dream was to find the ultimate location. The perfect place to create one of the world’s most pristine living environments that’s also an adventurous holiday destination, a peaceful and serene retirement community, and a ‘European-friendly’ winter escape.

In the quest to find this vision of perfection, the family left their native Switzerland and embarked with Australian-born wife Lyn on a journey of discovery. Naturally, they chose the lucky country, searching the entire Queensland coastline by air, sea and land. Their paradise would have an ideal year-round climate, a beautiful and romantic setting, an existing and natural eco-system and proximity to the sea for easy beach access, fishing and aquatic adventures… not too near but not too far from modern conveniences.

The Krauchi family were impressed with cosmopolitan, elegant Noosa, and marvelled at the natural beauty of World Heritage Fraser Island. Find a place between these two icons, and the search would be over. On the magnificent stretch of coastline immediately north of Noosa they discovered Cooloola National Park, the wreck of the Cherry Venture, Double Island Point, the world-famous coloured sands and the beachside township of Rainbow Beach. Within walking distance was over six kilometers of absolute beachfront land. They had found it…the ultimate location.

In 1989, they began making the dream a reality by acquiring Rainbow Shores. A stringently master planned and environmentally sensitive first stage of development of over 50 hectares was approved for a population of 4100. They have since launched various precincts within this stage, including Baden Holiday Apartments, Surfside Villas and architect designed Beach houses. They have also completed tourism facilities including a 9 hole golf course, a fine-dining restaurant and various pools and spas.

Bluewater Lodges represents a new and exciting extension of this already successful enterprise. The Krauchi family looks forward to continuing the vision of a well planned, environmentally sensitive coastal community becoming a reality. They thank all investors, residents and holiday makers who have joined them in this vision so far. They invite you to share in their dream at beautiful Rainbow Shores with the release of Bluewater Lodges.
