Was really excited to do the sand boarding but it was pretty lame to be honest. I did it as a combo tour with a dolphin watch so made it worth the price, but wasn't what i expected. And the 4WD part just meant for a really bumpy ride

I went as part of a group...a bit away from Sydney. If it were for just me...would not have gone. It's an all right attraction..the 4WD's were OK and the sand surfing was pretty decent. They provided water which was a nice gesture given the heat. I would avoid 11am to 4pm given the heat.

We arrived at the dunes with a large tour group company. The only forewarning was that at the last minute on the bus, we were required to sign injury waiver releases. I suspect that many on the bus did not read or understand the document, especially since many were non-English speaking. While quick safety instructions were given at the dunes,... More

On arrival at departure point, we found the check in easy and staff exceptional friendly and professional. I had already pre-booked this tour which made the transition quick and effortless.

We were staying nearby and my wife was insistent we went - never say no in that situation!
