Get ready to explore 2,500 hectares of sand dunes that make up Stockton Bight! We will take you on a fully guided tour in a purpose built 4WD vehicle across the mighty sand dunes. 

After a quick safety briefing and a few do's & dont's you are able to run free and go crazy sandboarding down the dunes. Feel the wind in your hair and the adrenaline in your chest as you race down the 30-40 metre high sand dunes! How many times will you slide, roll or run your way down? 
The sand dunes of Stockton Bight are the largest moving dunes in the Southern Hemisphere. Dunes are hills of loose sand built by wind or the flow of water. They are important as they protect inland areas from coastal water intrusion. They occur in different shapes and sizes, with the tallest recored at 229 metres in North America.
After all of sand dune exploration, we will head to the "Tin City". The Tin City is a small cluster of fishing shacks made out of corrugated iron located right in the middle of the surrounding sand dunes, it pops of the sand and looks as though it is mirage! As we explore the unique Tin City, our knowledgable guides will tell you all about the history of the dunes as well as what flora and fauna are able to grow in this barren landscape. Ask them any question about dunes and they'll probably know the answer!
We'll finish the day by awarding you with your 'Sandboarding Champion' certificate and saying bye to your new mates. Sandboarding is a brilliant activity for all ages so kids are welcome as well as your nanna! All tours depart from the lower car park at the end of James Paterson Street, Anna Bay. Keep your eyes peeled for the red bus and red trailer.
