Port Stephens Camel Riding
Here’s all you need to know to book and enjoy camel riding on the beach at Port Stephens. This is such a fun activity to do and that’s for the adults as well as the kids!
Where to Ride Camels in Port Stephens
Worimi Conservation Lands are the largest area of sand dunes in the southern hemisphere. The dunes are also known as Stockton Bight Sand Dunes.
At the north end is Birubi Beach and camel tours set off from the public car park. Here’s a map to show you where.
Now I’ve been on a camel before so wasn’t scared, but the girls were nervous. When the camel stands up you do need to hold on tight.
Ours was just a 20 minute ride, far too short, we would have loved to wander off for a much longer trek into the dunes. These are available so we’ll have to do that next time.
