The Henty sand dunes are located around 14km north of Strahan. The entry point to it is a day use picnic area which is clearly marked on the side of the road - you shouldn't miss it.

They are around 30m high and stretch over 15km. Once at the picnic area you are confronted with a wall of sand which you can just walk to the top of. From here things are a little less clear - you can walk about 1.5 hours to ocean beach but given there is no clearly designated path to follow you do feel kind of lost at times. That being said you can always turn around and follow your footprints back. If you're going to do this bring plenty of water for obvious reasons.

It's free and unique so we figured why not stop for a look? Fo us it was a way to break up a otherwise long drive to Stanley.

The sand on the dune is remarably soft. I climbed the dune and took a short walk when I realized I was a long way from the beach. You can see where people have slide down the dune however, be warned the climb back up the dune is best for the young.

10 mins from Strahan by car - huge sandhills. Take boogy boards. The steep first climb is a challenge but l am a senior and crawled up with a bit of puff. Mostly flat after that. Take your thongs for the walk to the sea. The dune buggies looked like fun too

We went as a family with small kids. We rented toboggans in Strahan before we make our way to this place. For a start, there is a very tough & tiring climb up a steep slope of sand wall. My 4yo girl did struggled but eventually we all made it to the top, and... A huge vast sandpit laying in front of us! Feels like I'm in Tatooine. We did enjoyed the view. But we were quite rush for time, regret we didn't have more time here. We did get to do a huge slide down the sand slope to our car, it was great fun! Tip: you need stamina for this!

The Henty Dunes are fun for kids young and old as well as being an amazing occurrence that most city slickers very rarely see. Great to slide down but remember to hire your toboggans before you get to the dunes themselves.

We visited the Henty Dunes with the Strahan ATV Tours. Such a cool place to visit, and drive around. Be sure to bring warm clothing.

What an amazing place. Don’t miss it if you are in nearby Strahan. It’s only 15 kilometres away. The dunes are enormous and the area they cover is massive. Such a wonder of nature!

Wow this shocked me how huge the dunes were. Its a steep sandy climb to the top but worth it when you get up to the top. You can hire sleds from the Wild Rivers Jet Boat folks in town and have a thrilling ride down. Great for kids too. You will definitely get some exercise going up there. Great photos and its nestled near pine plantations on one side and the ocean on the other. Spectacular!

Yes it was windy. Yes there was rain. The waves were crashing on the beach - which is a fair walk away. This is a great place to explore. Rolling wooded dunes, vast stretches of pristine sand and the occasional steep slope for the more adventurous to play upon. If you want to plan ahead - hire a sandboard from the Jet Boat kiosk in Strahan and surf the dunes.
