Sand Dune Safaris is a small, non-commercial, family owned and operated business. We have been operating on the beautiful Stockton Sand Dunes for over 20 years. What sets us apart from other 4WD tour operators is that we do not cater to the large inbound tour groups that visit the dunes daily from Sydney. Therefore we are able to provide you with the friendly, personal service we pride ourselves on!
Our focus away from the ‘mass produced” tourist market allows us to be unique in several ways: We are able to offer Stand Up sandboarding in addition the sit down style. This is because we don’t have an overcrowded dune. In addition, our personal service means we can spend more time overcoming any language barriers, and offering individual attention. We like to encourage our customers to stay and enjoy their experience for as long as possible.
We provide a shaded picnic area complete with tables and chairs. Bring your lunch and enjoy the views! Our sand dune area is the furthest along the dunes, as we don’t have groups needing to stick to tight itineraries. This means getting to our sand dune area is relaxing, and half the fun! We can be very flexible and provide our customers with that ‘little bit extra” to ensure your visit is extra special. We love staying open until late, especially in winter as the sunsets are amazing! Our tours are designed to be fun for the whole family, regardless of age. Highlights include the unique settlement of Tin City, Pippi Catch and Release (both subject to tides), Sandboarding, visiting WWII sites and learning about the indigenous history within the sand dunes.
On weekends and during school holidays we run a continuous shuttle service to the dunes. Hop on one of our 4WD's for an exciting ride to some of the best sandboarding dunes available! Here one of our friendly instructors will greet you and make you feel at home. Find a spot under the shade in our picnic area, then stay and play as long as you like. Shuttles run every 15 minutes.
Our vehicles are also available for private charters. We pride ourselves on offering flexibility to our customers, let us know if you are looking for a unique experience for your group and we can tailor a tour to suit your requirements!
