Port Stephens 4WD Tours - Port Stephens Area

Customers jumping on Stockton Beach

Explore the Southern Hemisphere’s largest moving coastal sand dunes with Port Stephens 4WD Tours. You’ll marvel at the towering sand dunes, part of the Worimi Conservation Lands. There are Aboriginal cultural sites and remains of old shipwrecks.

The eco-discovery tours include the spectacular scenery and the opportunity for sand tobogganing, or sandboarding. You’ll enjoy the thrill of sliding down the Stockton Bight dunes, more than 30 metres high, at angles up to 60 degrees.

Sand toboggans, instructions and supervision are included in the tours. Worimi Conservation Lands are of special significance for the Worimi Aboriginal people, who have been using the lands and waters for many thousands of years.

On the North Coast, Port Stephens 4WD Tours are in Stockton Street, Nelson Bay; a short drive from the sand dunes. Nelson Bay is about 2 hr 30 min from Sydney by car. Or travel by train from Sydney to Newcastle, where you can take a bus to Nelson Bay.
