Sand Dune Adventures
Live the adventure that promises you a ride that no one else can. Experience the Stockton Beach sand dunes like never before, riding safely from bush to beach on a 400cc Kymco ‘All Terrain’ Quad Bike.
Your 1 hour adventure begins at the Murrook Complex where you fill out your paperwork & you drive yourself to our staging site, the beginning of the tour and where you will learn the basics of quad bike riding, including safe ATV handling and riding techniques. From there you will be taken for an unforgettable journey through bushland as your Aboriginal guide will give you an insight into traditional Aboriginal food, culture and history. Once through the bush you come out on top of the largest ‘moving’ sand dune system in the Southern Hemisphere where some dunes can reach up to 50metres high.
Immerse yourself in a coastal wilderness like none other. Experience the Stockton Beach that holds secrets to Aboriginal Culture, WWII and the wreck of the Norwegian bulk carrier the ‘Sygna’.
During the tour we place a strong emphasis on interpretive tours of the Stockton Sand Dunes and beach. We pride ourselves on providing you with a full appreciation of the area with its rich cultural and historical heritage.
We actually own and control the highest coastal sand dunes in the southern hemisphere and they are not open to the public. The only way to see them is through us. This way we can control the Environmental impacts and protection of our Aboriginal heritage. The public and all other tours must use the designated off road areas, low dunes and plenty of people!
DO I NEED TO BOOK IN ADVANCE?
It Is Highly Recommended!
While we accept walk-in's, we certainly don't want you to be dissappointed. Booking in advance secures your adventure and avoids the confusion and frustration of turning up and not getting out on the dunes as you may have anticipated. When pre-booking, we seek a non-refundable 50% deposit as first payment and 100% payment in full on arrival.
If for any reason you can't make it AND give us a full 24hrs notice, we'll hold onto a credit in your name, for the amount of your deposit, ready for you to take advantage of at a later time! Now that's customer service for ya!
