| Our move to the Rainbow Coast was delightful. We bought our house the weekend of our very first visit and have settled in, watching rainbows daily from our front window. Having lived in almost a dozen different countries since we were married, it took us only an instant to recognise that the Rainbow Coast is a special place.
During our first visit, we toured the coast with our two children and saw everything that could be seen (thanks to the Visitors Centres - so friendly!) We recorded our tours, laughing and playing along the way. The more we explored the more wonderful we knew this place to be.
Having shared our experiences of our world travels for over a decade on our personal websites, we knew that the beauty of the Rainbow Coast had to be shared too.
The photos and travel-clips were taken by all of us, a few by our four-year-old son!
We hope you like this site and get to experience the Rainbow Coast, virtually. When you come I'm sure you'll find the environment outstanding and the people open, friendly, helpful, and kind. We do. I've never seen so many smiles and bright eyes. It must be all the fresh air from Antarctica, and all the rainbows, of course! ~ V.
"A family of five had come for a share,
of the wonderful southernmost air.
They looked all around from the sky to the ground,
heard the sea on the breeze as it rustled the trees,
and they knew it was right on the very first night
for the rainbows had put them at ease."

Special thanks to our children for suggesting so many creative and playfully creative ideas including many of the icons and graphics. We are blessed to have such tech-savvy children!
We would also like to acknowledge also their photographic skills, as some of the photos you'll see are theirs. We are grateful to of our friends who have lived in the region their whole lives - your suggestions make this site a better resource for everyone.
The great map making needs a mention - excellent coding and creating the interactive maps Tila - and thanks to Google for providing the open source solution. We appreciate the the creativity and playfulness that created such a pretty (and useful) website. And finally to the great mystery of the universe which created such spectacular diversity. We are so blessed to be here on this planet. It is important that we preserve it.
