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.

Here’s our merry crew aboard the ships of the desert, who don’t look too impressed at all.

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.

We really enjoyed spending some time with the camels at Port Stephens, they were very calm and patient.

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.

At $30 for adults and $25 for children under 15, the 20 minute ride is not cheap, but a very unusual and interesting experience for riders.
