  • Port Stephens: Unlimited Sandboarding & 4WD Sand Dune Tour

    1. Port Stephens: Unlimited Sandboarding & 4WD Sand Dune Tour

    You have to experience sandboarding in Port Stephens. The thrill of sliding down the spectacular Stockton Sand Dunes is so much fun.

The views alone are spectacular. Once you are in the dunes, the team will give you a rundown on sandboarding and how to use the handmade custom-designed boards for maximum safety and speed. Then you are off. Climb to the top of the dunes, jump on your board, then slide on down and repeat. Your ticket includes unlimited sandboarding so you can stay and play as long as you like. For most people that’s about 1 – 1.5 hours. Wh...

    Really nice and friendly instructors. It was a beautiful day. They will bring you to the sand dunes with a 4wd car, really impressive. After gliding some dunes sitting on the board we decided to try them standing, scarrrry but so much fun. Really nice to do with your partner, group of friends or as family. Thanks a lot for the amazing day! :)

The whole family ages 7-67 went on this tour and we had a ball. We all started on the small dunes but eventually hit the tall ones. What a great experience. A few face plants into the sand but it didn’t stop us, so many laughs. A bit of hard work getting to the top but well worth it

Great fun! Very professionally run, guides very helpful and accommodating of differing levels of rider competency. Would absolutely recommend
