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.

Amazing just to see the sheer number of tourists and tourist operators when you drive in off the road. A real eye opener. We prefer the quieter beaches so not for us but enjoyed seeing how popular it was.

Friends of ours took us out four wheel driving along the Stockton Sand Dunes as I wanted to find an area noted as Tin City... this is a small group of old tin shacks hidden in amongst the dunes. Really great area to photograph.

We discovered this place by chance and how amazing it is. Camels on the beach, huge sand dunes and 4X4 driving, dolphins surfing the waves only metres from swimmers, a great cafe, swimming and more. Excellent tourist destination.
