Driving along the beach, with the ocean view for miles. stopping along the way for lunch and a shallow swim, as this beach is NOT patrolled by life savers. Excellent spot for fishes and flying kites.

Like most reviewers, knew little about the dunes. First sighting was from the plane as we flew into Newcastle airport, didn't realise there was so much sand here. Good for walking or a quad bike adventure.

My wife and me were walking like for 4 hours. We took a drone with us, and make marvelous videos. The place is perfect for great pictures.

Loved the Stockton sand dunes. Had not realised that there was so much sand in this area. Did a sand buggy tour, and would like to go sand boarding another time. The views are magnificent.

Riding quad bikes or sledding in the sand dunes is such a good experience and always a good gift idea! Never been dissapointed

We did not know about this place and it was a great discovery. So many things to do apart from just enjoying the scenery! 4X4 dune riding, quad biking, camel riding.... It felt like we were back in Dubai.

Off-roading, fishing, exploring ….. its all here at Stockton dunes. Check out Tin City, the Sygna wreck or just miles and miles of untouched nature.

The sea by the desert! A must-visit for Port Stephens. Search Birubi Beach on GPS where car park and cafe is available, it's on the northeast side of the Sand Dunes which gives you a beautiful view.

It's no wonder several movies have been filmed here with the vast Sahara like landscape of sand dunes stretching for kilometres along the coast north of Newcastle. We didn't join a 4WD safari but marvelled at the stunning scenery of the wild Stockton Beach being...More

Sad to see what was once majestic hill-like mountains of sand become an almost flat beach-like landscape over the years of visiting. Probably a combination of erosion & all the sand-based activities & the wear & tear. Unchecked vandalism has left its mark with broken...More
