Great place with good views of the ocean and dunes.. good place to spot whales from the shore during the season.. We have spotted one during our visit.. we must be the lucky one.. Best time to go is when it is not too hot or cold... Sandboarding is fun for all, but best suited for the fittest..

Visited over easter holidays. It rained a lot but did not spoil the fun. Worth doing a quad bike tour longer than 1 hour. We took Tin City tour too. Sand boarding was fun and kids will love it.

Another must see and experience in Port Stephens. the dunes stretches 20km and a number of businesses are run there for 4wd tours, sandboarding tours and more. The beach next to this area is great as well, nice water and great waves. Although, stay between the flags at all times.

We went to the dunes on a tag along 4 wheel drive tour. The guide took us to a largish dune and showed us how to get to the top and back down safely without rolling the car. Then we were off for a trip down the dune line. Then we came across this Huge.... dune. Sure enough he showed... More

best fun ever, the only hard part was walking up the dunes but the ride down was so worth it. The people who ran the bus trips out to the dunes were friendly and helpful and we were able to climb / ride the dunes as many times as we liked.

In case you do not know, the dunes are the largest continuous mobile sand dunes in the Southern Hemisphere. So, you won't want to miss this when you visit Port Stephens. You have plenty to choose to do in this place: sand boarding, camel riding, 4WD experience, tour to Tin City and/or the Sygna wreck and other historical sites. Many... More

We didn't participate in any of the activities there - because we had done them recently else where - but they looked like fun especially the camel rides . The dunes are beautiful

The sand dunes make a beautiful scenery just like in the middle east, exactly similar to the famous PC wallpapers. Sand boarding is one of the activities that can be done here, enjoy sliding down a huge dune with a board provided by many tour companies (We chose Port Stephens 4WD Tour and they took us to the largest available...

The recent erosion of the beach (and its been happening for the last few hundred years) has cause some dramatic changes to how we drive on it. A few years ago the sand was firm and provided you kept common sense in your mind you would rarely have any trouble. The sand dunes are exciting and watching kids glide down... More
