Easter School Holidays in Port Stephens 2019

The Easter school holidays are here! 

So we have extended our sandboarding hours from 9:00 am – 4:30 am everyday including the weekends. We will also be giving away a free family pass over the holidays to one lucky family. Details on how to enter will be posted on our buses – got to be in it win it!!

Join us for 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. Once on 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!)

We also have list of other activities to enjoy while you’re in town over the school holidays.

Hang out on the beach, listen to live music and learn about conscious consumerism at Robinson Reserve!

Port Stephens will welcome local treasure hunters this Saturday as the first Seaside Scavenge kicks off at Anna Bay’s Robinson Reserve, Anna Bay on 13 April 2019 after bad weather disrupted earlier attempts to host in March 2019.

Based on the concept of trading trash for treasures, the Seaside Scavenge will help promote the recycling and upcycling message to residents, visitors and business across Port Stephens. We are looking forward to supporting the Seaside Scavenge and to join the fight to reduce single use plastic across Port Stephens.
