Port Stephens Sand Boarding Trip

Sandboarding at Port Stephens

The amazing sand dunes behind Birubi Beach in Port Stephens are an amazing place to visit, especially if you get right up into them.  I wasn’t too sure about sand boarding as it sounded totally exhausting but the two kids were keen and so we set off!

We went with 4WD Tours R Us who run all sorts of tours and trips. We did a simple sand boarding tour.

A small 4WD bus dropped us off to the base camp not too far into the dunes.

This is sand boarding base camp where we met the instructor and were given our instructions

It looks so remote doesn’t it? But it’s just a short drive into the dunes

The instructor was very helpful, on these steep dunes all guests need to sit on the boards as they slide

It all reminded me of a ski slope area… except there are no lifts to get back up the slope. Sand boarding is a great workout as it’s a slog to climb back up the dunes

4WD Tours R Us can be found at the Lower Car Park, James Patterson Street, Anna Bay.

You can book tours online at the website here.

We did try a bit of stand up sand boarding on a less steep area. The girls are so graceful… we mums not so much
