Weather was perfect, started the day with run and chasing the sun and blue skies down 90 mile beach. Walked up the sand dunes, which was quite a challenge but worth the view

The dunes are a short 3km drive off the main road on the way to Cape Reinga. It's worth a visit as the dunes are huge! You can also hire bogie boards to surf down them should you wish. Photos don't do the dunes justice.

Just 4km / 6 min’s from State Highway 1 on a wide good quality gravel road you will come across these beautiful dunes, up to 150 metres high and of sensational fine golden sand they are just screaming “come and board me” or “come and climb me”. On our way north we passed a property renting boards and there was also a truck in the carpark doing the same. From the carpark you can also access 90 mile beach if you have a suitable vehicle.

Loads of fun for whole family. Range of rides, gentle slopes for smaller children, bigger faster slopes for the brave. Reasonably priced, could easily spend 2-3 hours here, allow time before or after trip to Cape Reinga.

The dunes are huge and gorgeous! A friendly man rents out sand surfing boards at the base of the dunes for $15. A super fun and exhilarating experience. Wear clothes you don’t mind getting sandy- everything will be covered in sand after your trip! It is recommended to hike the dunes barefoot and you can leave your shoes at the board rental area. From the highest dune you can see stunning views of 90 mile beach and the ocean.
