Summary
The Coolangatta Town Council named Rainbow Bay in 1924. It had previously been called 'Shark Bay. The name 'Rainbow' was designated in respect of a visit by HMS 'Rainbow' which lay at anchor off Coolangatta beach for four days during Rous's exploration of the Tweed and Lower Gold Coast in 1828. The swimming pool at Snapper rocks was built ca 1955. Snapper Rocks was possibly named after the colonial cutter 'Snapper' that sailed close under Point Danger in 1822 in search of a new settlement site and during which the two mile wide navigable passage between Cook Island and the inner reef known as 'Fido' was discovered
