Australia Day in Port Stephens 2019

Visit Port Stephens this Australia Day long weekend.

Sandboarding – it is the ultimate way to add some adventure to your Port Stephens Holiday. Join us for a tour over the long weekend on the spectacular sand dunes of Stockton Beach!

The thrill of sliding down the spectacular Stockton Sand Dunes is so much fun!Join an unlimited sandboarding adventure from our meeting point at Birubi Beach, Anna Bay. You will board our custom built off road vehicles for the short, bouncy ride into the largest moving sand mass in the southern hemisphere.

The dunes stretch 32 kilometres, that’s the entire length of Stockton Beach, and can reach over 30 metres high, that’s like a 10 storey building. The views alone are spectacular.

4WD Tours R Us are open everyday over the Australia long weekend.

9:00 am – 5:00 pm Friday January 25th
9:00 am – 5:00 pm Saturday January 26th
9:00 am – 5:00 pm Sunday January 27th
9:00 am – 5:00 pm Monday January 28th

It can be warm on the dunes during the summer months so don’t forget to stay hydrated and bring an extra bottle of water with you.

  1. Slip on sun protective clothing that covers as much of your body as possible.
  2. Slop on SPF 30 or higher broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen, at least 20 minutes before sun exposure. Reapply every two hours when outdoors or more often if perspiring or swimming.
  3. Slap on a broad-brimmed hat that shades your face, neck and ears.
  4. Seek shade.
  5. Slide on sunglasses.

Once  in the dunes, our team will give you a run down on sandboarding and how to use our hand made custom designed boards for maximum speed (and safety!)

Then you are off. Climb to the top of the dunes, jump on your sandboard, slide on down, then repeat! Your ticket includes unlimited sandboarding (or unlimited fun!) so you can stay and play as long as you like. For most people that’s about 1 – 1.5hours.

When you are done just jump back aboard our 4WD buses (they leave every half an hour) to be taken back to the Birubi Beach starting point. It’s an amazing experience for everyone, no matter your age.

Our beach office is location in the lower car park at Birubi Beach, so once you are finished sandboarding why not jump in the ocean for a swim – it is gorgeous here!

And if you are out and about celebrating the beauty of Australia this long weekend don’t forget to take any rubbish with you and if you see someone else has left their rubbish, pick it up as well. We want to protect the gorgeous Worimi Conservation Lands here on the Stockton Sand Dunes.
